Grant says academy remains focus of West Ham

Avram Grant has assured West Ham United fans that the academy will remain a cornerstone of the club.

Grant is ready and willing to blood those from the youth ranks - a key selling point for him when joining the club earlier in the summer and also a positive given the league's new rules on homegrown talent.

He told whufc.com: "One of the reasons I came to West Ham is that our vision for the club is to have players from the Academy.

"We have a very good Academy and we want talented young players. This is part of the vision for this club."
