West Ham United boss Alan Curbishley says teenage striker Freddie Sears will be handed his full Premiership debut before the season ends.

He said: "I'm going to start him in one of the games, I've just got to pick it. [Everton] is a tough place to come to. I didn't think giving two 18-year-olds their debut at Goodison, at the same time, was advisable. But we'll see what we've got in the remainder of the games because certainly we want to see him start a game and see what he's got."
