maccaliam Posted December 22, 2014 Share Posted December 22, 2014 One would think with money being paid and them going through the process of appealing for a work permit, West Ham see Henry as a player of solid potential value. Great news for the young man. I have always thought quite highly of him, aside from his ball distribution which he really needs to work on. Also, TFC may not get big money for him, but what they do get is the street cred of having a player come out of their academy who was signed, got an opportunity with first team minutes, and was sold on to a big club in the English premiership. That is invaluable in their attempts to sell TFC to top youngsters to come into their academy, and once there, to stick with TFC and sign with the first team bc they have shown they can and will sell you to a big European club. I know it's only one player but the journey of a thousand miles and all that. It may sound a bit early to make such claims but that's the angle they are probably going to try to sell anyway.
