West Ham United supporters can only get excited by what those of West Bromwich Albion have been saying about loanee Grady Diangana’s debut last night.
The Baggies may have lost 2-1 at home to Millwall in the Carabao Cup first round, but new signings Diangana and Charlie Austin made a clear impact which bodes well for the future.
Amidst the disappointment, plenty of West Brom fans took to Twitter following full-time to praise the 21-year-old’s performance:

Read West Ham verdict
With the number of Premier League games he featured in under Manuel Pellegrini last season, he’s clearly touted for a big future and can definitely become a West Ham regular during the 2020-21 campaign.
It certainly seems like he’s started on the right foot at the Hawthorns, despite the result, and hopefully he becomes one of Slaven Bilic’s go-to guys in what promises to be a positive promotion bid.
We’ll be keeping a close eye on Diangana’s developments, as I’m sure plenty of West Ham fans will also, to see how he’s getting on in the Midlands.
