West Ham are reportedly considering recalling their attacker Grady Diangana from his loan in January – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter have insisted that they scrap those plans.
Sky Sports reports that the Hammers are mulling over bringing back the 21-year-old early from his season-long loan at Championship leaders West Brom.
The report explains that manager Manuel Pellegrini is looking at bolstering his options in attack for the second half of the season.
West Ham have the option to end Diangana’s loan spell early, but he’s playing the best football of his short senior career so far.
The skilful left-winger has already netted four goals in 14 games for West Brom, as well as chipping in with five assists.
He’s playing regularly under West Brom boss Slaven Bilic and is a perfect example of how effective the loan system can be.
But West Ham have hardly been scintillating in front of goal and disappointing at times out wide, with Felipe Anderson someone who’s been nowhere near his best.
It’s unclear on if Dianagana could break into the West Ham first-team in the second half of the season, but he’s certainly performing at a quality level right now and should have a bright future in the top-flight.
A selection of West Ham supporters on social media want to see young talent Diangana see out the rest of the season with West Brom and feels it would be the best move for the individual.
Here are some West Ham fans on Diangana:
@WestHam please don’t recall Diangana let him ball with wba for the rest of the season and not waste his talent in our shitfest

No way should we recall Diangana from WBA. Let him finish his excellent season at the Hawthorns under Slav. Will be much better for all concerned in the long run ⚒

Leave him there for the season. He’s playing well, and probably wants to help get them promoted anyway.

No. Let the kid develop and get regular game time. He will come back better, fitter and stronger

Absolutely not. The regular game time is doing wonders for him. Think he should finish the season. Antonio will be back by the time we can recall him anyway.

No let him stay and see out the whole season

Nope, let him play rather than sit on bench. Pell would’nt play him much. We have enough players to sort out the mess.
