West Ham have had a poor first half of the season so far during the 2019/20 campaign. Manuel Pellegrini is mostly to blame for that, but now David Moyes in charge and it’s time for the Irons to start turning things around, and he’s got a transfer window to kick him off.
It looks like the Irons will be fairly active this month and that a few players could make their way to Stratford, but one man who could be set to make a return to the club is Grady Diangana, who is currently at West Brom on a season-long loan and finds himself in fine form for the Baggies.
According to Football Insider, though, the young wide-man could still be recalled and play the second half of the season in the Premier League, but the Irons only have until January 14th to exercise the winger’s re-call clause, even though Moyes is keen on the youngster staying put in the West Midlands.
Regardless of whether or not Moyes wants to see Diangana stay put, with injuries to two of his wide-men in Andriy Yarmolenko and Michail Antonio, the Scottish tactician could easily have a change of heart if he feels that the youngster would be capable of getting them out of a hole whilst also maintaining a decent amount of senior minutes.
So far in the Championship, Diangana has been of the standout players who has been worth keeping an eye on. The 21-year-old has chipped in with five goals and six assists in 19 games in the division (Transfermarkt), and his impact at The Hawthorns bodes very well for his progression as a player.
Should Diangana be recalled this January?
The best place for Diangana for him to grow as a player would surely be The Hawthorns. Not because they put something different in the water in the West Midlands, but because he’ll get more minutes, although if Moyes can guarantee that he’ll play the 21-year-old, a recall isn’t the worst idea in the world.
