THE trio of Welsh Premier League clubs in the Europa League could land a plum tie with Premier League outfit West Ham United.

The Hammers pipped Everton to a place in Europe's second-tier competition after topping the Premier League Fair Play table.

Manager-less following the departure of Sam Allardye, West Ham will be one of 104 teams in the first qualifying round which begins on 2 July.

A meeting with United would be a guaranteed money-spinner for any of the WPL clubs and could attract additional income from live TV revenue.

Joint-chairmen David Sullivan and David Gold said: "Starting in early July will bring its challenges.

"But everyone at the club will be relishing the opportunity to feature on the European stage."

West Ham will be the highest seeded club in the first stage, above Sheriff Tiraspol of Moldova and Rosenborg of Norway.
