West Ham United midfielder Elliot Lee is proud to have won the club's Academy Player of the Year award.

Lee's father Rob and brother Ollie also played for the Hammers.

"I'm delighted with the award, I couldn't be happier," he told whufc.com. "It caps off a great season, so to pick up the award is brilliant.

"I love scoring goals - I've ended up as the top goalscorer for the Under-21s so that's great, and winning any award gives you confidence.

"I just want to push on from here and see what I can do in pre-season to impress the first team.

"My mate Moncs [George Moncur] won the Young Hammer of the Year so hopefully I can take that one off him next year!"
