Mark Noble's silky skills with a chewing gum have left West Ham supporters hoping that he'll be on hand to teach their young stars his secrets for years to come.

The 34-year-old, who is playing a reduced role in what is his 18th and final season for the club, had a part to play against Sevilla in the closing stages on Thursday.

However, it is a pre-match clip that has gone viral with supporters, with Noble showcasing some impressive skill with something much smaller than a football.

After having a look around the pitch, Noble spat out his gum and completed six keepie-uppies before catching it back in his mouth.

Arthur Masuaku and Alex Kral looked rather impressed with the veteran midfielder, with the Czech Republic international offering up a fist-bump.

One fan wrote: "So that’s how Payet learned to do it."

With a second adding: "Don't see Ronaldo doing this."

A third continued: "Hopefully he’ll be training our boys in the years to come."

With a fourth writing: "Noble still has it."

Another commented: "English Iniesta!"

While one more fan concluded: "This needs to go viral."

Although his playing deal is coming to an end, Noble hinted in February that his time at the club will not be coming to an end just yet.

Noble said in a recent interview with Rio Ferdinand: "We've got some top young talent that has come through and will come through.

"I'm at the academy all the time, see the boys train and there are two or three U16s who look like they could make that next step."
