Happy Birthday Grady

Happy Birthday to promising Hammer Grady Diagana who turned 22 years of age today.

The exciting young player joined West Ham United at the age of 12, Grady Diangana can play in a variety of positions across the forward line. The right-sided attacker was an influential member of the U23 side which won promotion to Premier League 2 Division 1 in 2016/17, featuring 15 times in total and scoring once.

A member of Terry Westley’s squad since the 2014/15 season Diangana, who models his game on the Brazilian great Ronaldinho,he forced his way into the first-team picture at the start of 2018/19, scoring twice on his debut in an 8-0 Carabao Cup victory against Macclesfield Town.

Three days later, Diangana made his first Premier League appearance, coming on as a 93rd minute substitute for Felipe Anderson in a 3–1 home victory against Manchester United. Diangana became a regular in the team following an injury to Andriy Yarmolenko, making his first Premier League start against Leicester City on 27 October and registering his first league assist in the following game, against Burnley. On 18 January 2019, Diangana signed a new six-year contract that keeps him at West Ham until 2025.

In August 2019, Diangana joined West Bromwich Albion on loan until the end of the season. He made his West Brom debut on 13 August 2019 in a 2–1 home defeat by Millwall in the first round of the EFL Cup. Diangana scored his first two goals for West Brom on his league debut, on 17 August 2019. Coming on at half-time for Kyle Edwards against Luton Town, scoring two goals in six minutes in a 2–1 win which ended Luton’s run of 28 home games unbeaten.

Hope you have a great day at home Grady, many happy returns!
