Bermudian goalkeeper Nathan Trott has joined French second division side Nancy on a season-long loan.

Trott’s parent club, West Ham United, made the widely expected announcement in a statement published on their website yesterday.

“Nathan Trott has joined French Ligue 2 club AS Nancy Lorraine on loan for the 2021-22 season,” the statement read.

“The promising West Ham United goalkeeper will continue his development at the Stade Marcel Picot, where his manager will be the former Barnsley boss Daniel Stendel.”

Trott made his senior debut for West Ham last season, coming off the bench in the Emirates FA Cup third-round win over Doncaster Rovers.

His opportunities behind first-choice Lucasz Fabianski and senior back-ups Darren Randolph and David Martin have been limited. And now West Ham are negotiating to bring in Paris Saint-Germain and France goalkeeper Alphonse Areola on a loan deal with a view to buy.

In joining the French club that birthed the legendary Michel Platini, Trott becomes the second youngster to go out on loan from London Stadium — with Joseph Anang moving to Stevenage, of Sky Bet League Two.

“Everyone at West Ham United wishes Nathan all the best for his loan spell,” the club statement concluded.

News of a possible move was first reported by the Daily Mail last week.
