He is a hugely exciting young talent and is the son of current Glentoran boss Warren Feeney.
The teenage attacker was watched by scouts from the Hammers at last night’s reserve match against Cliftonville.
David Moyes has already signed some of the most talented youngsters from the Northern Irish league over the past year or so, with Patrick Kelly, Callum Marshall and Michael Forbes all now playing for West Ham.
And now another one could be en route to East London…
West Ham to battle Chelsea for the signing of teenage attacking sensation George Feeney
The Belfast Telegraph reckon that Feeney is a target for the Hammers as well as the Blues.
It’s obviously too early to suggest that the 15-year-old will reach the very highest level of the game, but the early indications are very good indeed.
He certainly has all of the attributes needed to go to the very top.
The Belfast Telegraph suggest that he has ‘generated quite a buzz in England with his potential, eye for goal and all action style’.
A pacy forward, George Feeney possesses great movement and has impressive technical ability.
If he continues to work hard and applies himself correctly both on and off the pitch, he could well go on to become a star.
Whether the Hammers manage to sign him remains to be seen though.
