Jarrod Bowen has revealed that the time had to come for him to leave English Championship side Hull City ahead of a new challenge in the Premier League.
West Ham signed Bowen in January 2020 for a fee of £23m but reports claim that it may eventually rise to £25m.
The 23-year-old earned the move to the Premier League following his impressive performances for Hull City, where scored 16 goals and provided 6 assists from 29 matches.
Bowen has now revealed why he made the decision to join West Ham where he has scored one goal from four matches before the league was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“I felt I had done as much as I could at Hull, and I felt like I had earned this opportunity now," he said.
“I’m starting down here again and I’ve got to work my way up with my time here.
"Hopefully it’s a very long time. It’s everyone’s dream to play in the Premier League and, when a team like West Ham came in for me, it was a no-brainer.
“Look at the stadium. When I signed, I went to the stadium and I looked around and got to take it all in.
