West Ham attacker Grady Diangana has completed a permanent move to Premier League rivals West Brom – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter are raging at the announcement.
The Hammers have confirmed on their official website that the 22-year-old has made a move to the Hawthorns, where he enjoyed a successful loan spell last season.
Newly-promoted West Brom have confirmed he’s signed a five-year deal with them and he’s done so after playing a major role last season in their promotion from the Championship.
The English winger scored eight goals and made seven assists in the league, as they finished second in the second-tier and earned the right to be back in the top-flight.
He’s a skilful winger that has come through the academy ranks at West Ham, but he will now be playing his senior football in the West Midlands and appears to have found a club that are a big fan of him.
A selection of West Ham supporters on social media were furious that the youngster has been allowed, as they would have loved to seen him integrated to their first-team in the new season.
The rapid wide player did manage 22 senior games for the Hammers before his loan exit and the club have now decided to cash in on him.
Here are some West Ham fans discussing Diangana’s departure:
