Lewis Hall's impressive cameo against West Ham United was recognised by his Newcastle United teammates.

Bruno Guimaraes joined his Newcastle United teammates in hailing Lewis Hall's performance against West Ham United.

Hall was introduced around the hour-mark when the Magpies trailed 3-1 after Alexander Isak's opener from the penalty spot was cancelled out by Michail Antonio, Mohammed Kudus and Jarrod Bowen.

The 19-year-old linked up brilliantly down the left hand side with fellow substitute Harvey Barnes, whose brace inspired United to a dramatic victory after Isak made it 3-2 via his second his spot-kick of the match.

Reacting to the result on Instagram, Hall said: "Wow, what a game! Great character from this boys this afternoon. +3 😍⚫️⚪️".

And his post provoked a response from a number of teammates. Jacob Murphy said "Lewy H 😍 proud of you! 💫" while Joe White replied "Love it". But it Guimaraes' response that gained the most traction with the Brazilian simply saying "big player".

Hall's appearance against the Hammers was only his fourth of 2024, which sums up what has been a difficult start to life on Tyneside.

The left-back joined on a season-long loan deal from Chelsea last August, which will become permanent transfer for an initial £28million this summer, and in the four games Hall has started, he has been replaced at half-time in three of those.

Hall hasn't endured much game time since his last start at AFC Bournemouth away to November but having also impressed with his cameo appearance at Manchester City before the international break, the England youth international is pushing to start Tuesday's clash against Everton.
