West Ham United defender Winston Reid is heading to the Olympic Games in Tokyo as an over-aged player for New Zealand. The 33-year-old comes into this tournament on the back of a loan spell at newly promoted in the Championship last season, where he played 11 times as the Bees won the playoffs against Swansea City.
Reid’s side who are nicknamed the All Whites will be playing against the likes of Honduras, Romania and South Korea in Group B. The former Denmark youth international hasn’t played a league game for the Hammers since the 2017/18 campaign and has even gone on loan at MLS side Sporting Kansas City since then in 2020. West Ham take on Newcastle United at St James’ Park, but Reid may be using the Olympic Games to raise his stock and find a route out of the London Stadium.
