Parfitt-Williams joins Slovenian side
Djair Parfitt-Williams will be hoping to resurrect his football career in Slovenia after signing for top-flight side NK Rudar Velenje.
The 21-year-old forward has been looking for a new club since last summer when Premier League club West Ham United decided against renewing his contract.
Parfitt-Williams, once regarded as one of the brightest prospects at West Ham, made an appearance for Sheffield United’s Under-23 side in December, a 2-1 defeat at home to Nottingham Forest.
The Bermudian featured twice for West Ham’s first team against Lusitanos of Andorra in the Europa League qualifiers in 2015 and was an unused substitute in four Premier League matches.
He was also a member of the team that won the Under-21 Premier League Cup after a 5-3 penalty shoot-out win away to Hull City during the 2015-16 season.
Parfitt-Williams 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. He had been playing for the San Jose Earthquakes Academy at the time.
