West Ham trialist Devante Cole looked good on the pitch in the team’s 1-0 loss to Colchester, attracting praise from Academy manager Terry Westley.
But who is he and what’s his pedigree?
1. He’s got some celebrity sparkle
His father is none other than former England and Manchester United striker Andy Cole and Devante plays in the same position as his dad.
2. But Devante went blue
Instead of following in his dad’s Red Devil colours, Devante found a home at rivals Manchester City donning their sky blue kit. He has played for the team since joining its academy in 2003 with loan spells at various clubs.
3. You may well spot him in Cheshire
The 20-year-old star lives in plush village Alderley Edge, so if you’re dining there at Italian eatery Gusto or supping cocktails at the quirky Botanist, keep an eye out.
4. He’s travelled north and south
Last year, he spent time at League One side Barnsley and first appeared as a substitute during the side’s clash with Coventry. He netted his first goal for the club in his second match, a 4-1 win over Gillingham.
He left Lancashire for MK Dons in January this year.
5. He's got international caps too
The striker has showcased his talent after being selected for England at under-16, under-17, under-18, and under-19 levels.
