Maiga came on as a second half substitute for Metz’s last game of the season to complete his season long loan for the French outfit. Despite his appearance on 56 minutes Metz lost their final game to Lille 4-1. Metz are relegated from Ligue 1 which former Metz striker Diafra Sakho help them achieve. In the 2013–14 season Sakho scored 20 goals in 36 appearances as Metz won the Ligue 2 title. For his performances, Sakho was voted Ligue 2 Player of the Year for the 2013–14 season.
Maiga will now report back for training with West Ham in late June when the pre season campaign begins unless a new loan deal can be found. Maiga signed West Ham for a reported £4.7m from Sochaux scoring 6 goals for the Hammers from 37 appearances.
Metz were thought to paying just £6,000 of Maiga £30,000 per week wages. He has one year remaining on his West Ham contract worth around £1.5m in wages.
