Jessica Ziu set for West Ham move

Republic of Ireland international Jessica Ziu is set for a move to West Ham. 

The Shelbourne winger - who is only 19 - will link up with the Women's Super League side in the summer.

Ziu's stock has been rising steadily since she first broke into the Shels team in 2018 aged just 16.

She has gone on to score 19 goals for the club and played a key part in their run to the title last season.

Ziu will stay with Shelbourne until the transfer window opens in the summer when she will complete her move.

“I’m so excited to be joining West Ham United," Ziu told whufc.com. “It’s a proud moment for me and my family. I’ve been playing football since I was four years old, and my goal has always been to become professional.

“The fact that I’m now able to call myself a West Ham United player is surreal, but I’m really looking forward to next season and the opportunity that I have.

“I’ve already met the girls and the staff, and everyone was so welcoming to me when I came over for a short period.

“I would describe myself as a pacey player, I like to dribble through players and in tight spaces. I’m technical on the ball and a hard worker off it – and hopefully that should stand me in good stead coming over to the WSL.”

Ziu's move represents yet another Irish player joining the Hammers.

Leanne Kiernan, Ruesha Littlejohn and Courtney Brosnan have all played for the club in the past.

West Ham are currently sixth in the Women's Super League table.
