West Ham chief Carr targets American talent

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.

So far, the Hammers' football academy in the USA has recommended 16 players to be evaluated by the club's youth coaches over the last year, and Carr will return with the goal of finding 10 more players to visit the academy in Little Heath.

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."
