West Ham's academy director Tony Carr is on the lookout for young talent across the pond during the club's high-profile trip to the United States and Canada in July.
Training camps are to be held in Georgia, Illinois and Indiana, while there will be some around the team's friendlies in North America.
And Carr is enthusiastic about what he might find across the Atlantic.
"The enthusiasm with American youngsters to get better and to play the game is unquenchable at the moment," Carr told the club's website.
"There is lots of raw talent in the US and some very good players. There is no question about that."
