West Ham starlet Holmar Orn Eyjolfsson has joined Belgian outfit Roeselare on loan.

The 19-year-old defender is yet to force his way into the first-team reckoning at Upton Park and took in a spell at League Two side Cheltenham earlier this season.

His development will now continue in Belgium, where he is set to join a team currently battling relegation.

Roeselare are an ambitious outfit, though, and have already been busy in the transfer window strengthening their squad.

Iceland U21 international Eyjolfsson hopes they will provide him with an opportunity to prove his worth and catch the eye of West Ham boss Gianfranco Zola.

"At West Ham I haven't played very much so at Roeselare I want to play more minutes," said the youngster.

"Playing for points every week will help to make me stronger."
