    Looking for a new club: Djair Parfitt-Williams made an appearance for Sheffield United Under-23


Djair Parfitt-Williams is looking to resurrect his professional career after making an appearance for Sheffield United Under-23 last week.

Parfitt-Williams, who was released by Premier League side West Ham United in the summer, played in the Blades’ under-23’s 2-1 defeat at home to Nottingham Forest. He was substituted after 69 minutes, with Forest going on to win the game thanks to goals from Toby Edster and Lewis Walters either side of a Tyler Smith equaliser.

Parfitt-Williams is a free agent after West Ham decided against renewing his contract when his two-year deal expired.

The 21-year-old forward featured twice for the club’s first team against Lusitanos of Andorra in the Europa League qualifiers in 2015 and was an unused substitute in four Premier League matches.

The Bermudian was also a member of the team that won the Under-21 Premier League Cup after a 5-3 penalty shoot-out victory away to Hull City during the 2015-16 season. He signed his first professional contract with West Ham in June 2015 after leading the scoring for their under-18 side, notching nine goals. The former Somerset Trojans youngster was recommended to the East London club as a 14-year-old by former West Ham striker Clyde Best.

Parfitt-Williams had been playing for the San Jose Earthquakes Academy when his grandfather Lynn Wade contacted Best to run the rule over the youngster.
