Blackburn face West Ham battle to land Macclesfield youngster Elliott Hewitt

Blackburn Rovers face missing out on Macclesfield Town defender Elliott Hewitt.

The Mirror says West Ham are ready to swoop for Macclesfield's young right-back Hewitt - ahead of Premier League opposition.

A top Hammers scout watched the 17-year-old Welshman at the weekend after receiving rave reviews, and the London club may now take a chance on a player who has attracted major interest.

Leeds United's chief talent-spotter was also at the Silkmens' League Two match against Southend and Blackburn are also keeping an eye on Hewitt, although he is not ready for the top flight yet.
