Montano signs

Last updated : 18 July 2011 By Plymouth_hammer

The 19-year-old Academy graduate signed his first professional deal a year ago but saw his progress last season interrupted by a succession of minor injuries.

Speaking to the West Ham TV he said, “I’m very proud of this contract and I’m happy with myself as well.

“I have got my second contract which is the most important thing.

“Hopefully I can keep going from here and make the next step, which is to make my first-team debut and hopefully become established.  I want to prove myself.”

“As a first-year pro I just wanted to carry on from where I’d left off, which I did, but when we got back from the tour the injuries started kicking-off and it was a bit stop-start for me.

“Obviously I managed to get fit again and here I am.  I’ve got my next professional contract and I want to carry on from there.”
