25-year-old West Ham want to sign would be the 2nd fastest player in the Premier League


According to Christian Falk and Bild, West Ham United want to sign Jeremiah St Juste from Mainz, and if they bring the Dutchman in, they will be signing a very unique player.

Indeed, the centre-half isn’t like most defenders.

Standing at just 6ft, he’s not the biggest centre-back on the planet, and he would certainly be different to the likes of Kurt Zouma, Angelo Ogbonna and Craig Dawson.

However, one thing St Juste does have is immense pace.

Indeed, according to the Bundesliga’s official website, St Juste is one of the fastest players in Bundesliga history, he clocked a speed of 36.63 km/h this season, and that would make him the second-fastest player in the Premier League, behind only Chelsea’s Antonio Rudiger.

When you consider the speedsters that are in the Premier League at the moment such as Mohamed Salah, Jamie Vardy and Tariq Lamptey, the fact that St Juste is quicker than everyone except for Rudiger is ridiculous.

It would be interesting to see how West Ham would use St Juste, he wouldn’t suit their physical style under David Moyes, but his pace could be well-suited to a back three or even a shift to full-back in this side.

This is certainly a player to keep an eye on.
