West Ham set to keep in-demand winger this summer


Grady Diangana has been out on loan this season.

The West Ham United man has been with West Bromwich Albion since the beginning of the campaign.

He has made 28 Championship appearances in total, scoring seven goals and registering six assists, with the Baggies trying to win promotion to the Premier League.

Slaven Bilic’s side are second in the table, two points behind Leeds United and one clear of third-placed Brentford.

They take on Huddersfield Town and QPR before the end of the campaign, and two wins would see them secure a return to the top-flight.

Diangana has been in good form in recent weeks, scoring against both Hull City and Derby County, and there is significant interest in his services.


The Glasgow Times has reported previously that both Rangers and Celtic are hoping to snap Diangana up, while the Baggies also retain an interest.

Football Insider, though, reports that the Hammers are hopeful of keeping Diangana around, with David Moyes a big fan of the winger.

The 22-year-old is said to be in the former Manchester United manager’s plans, with the club planning a major role for him in the 2020/21 season.

GIVEMESPORT’S Harry Sherlock says…

Diangana is really good.

The winger has been in exceptional form this season and he offers some genuine dynamism and the ability to create chances from nothing.

Per WhoScored, he averages 1.6 shots per game, 1.3 key passes, and 2.5 dribbles and would be an intriguing squad option for Moyes next season.

He would offer back-up to Michail Antonio and Jarrod Bowen on the right flank, and gives the Irons the depth they will need to improve next season.

That, of course, is provided they remain in the Premier League; they are still in danger of falling through the trapdoor, though results would need to go against them.
