Diangana decision may need to be made


Josh Cullen’s return to West Ham is less likely than that of Grady Diangana’s who is enjoying a brilliant season on loan at West Bromwich Albion.

Diangana has turned in some outstanding performances in midfield this season for the Baggies, scoring four goals along the way with a handful of assists thrown in.

And should the indifferent form of such as Fornals, Lanzini, Snodgrass and Wilshere continue, the manager could face a big decision as the winter transfer window approaches.

Although Michail Antonio is likely to be back by then – and his energy, pace and power may be another reason behind the team’s decline – Diangana’s situation is one which will command a lot of attention.

Frankly, it would be tough on the boy who could easily be in line for a Championship medal as things stand right now but  club insiders are already suggesting a move back home could be on.

ClaretandHugh was told by a senior source on e mail: “There is a two week window between January 1 and 14th when we can do so – it will be a managerial decision. It’s always a possibility.”

    Grady Diangana from West Brom and Nathan Trott from Wimbledon need to be bought back to play for the Hammers. It will be a bonus if Antonio makes a come back, but we dare not rush Michael back in case he pulls another hamstring or has another injury. There are others in the Under 23’s that could be included in the first team squad.

    please don’t he’s enjoying his football – he’ll languish on the bench if he comes back to East London

  • AfricanHammer says:

    We have a great forward already that is not the problem, as we all know we are not giving him any service so that what needs to be addressed.
    Anderson out – Holland In
    Lanzini out – Wilshere in ( while he is no injured)
