West Ham United’s young winger Grady Diangana is reportedly set to return to the club at the end of the ongoing campaign, according to ClaretandHugh.com.
The 22-year-old is currently spending a season-long loan with Championship outfit West Bromwich Albion, where he is proving to be an integral part of the team’s push for a return to the Premier League next season.
Earlier reports suggested that the Baggies were interested in making Diangana’s move from West Ham permanent, but as per ClaretandHugh.com, the player is now set to return to his parent club.
The report stated that West Brom remain interested in signing the England U21 international permanently but are unwilling to meet the Hammers’ valuation of £20 million for the departure of their prized asset.
It is believed that West Brom have already extended the player’s contract—which was due to expire on June 30—until July 22 when the season will be eventually concluded.
West Brom are currently placed on the second position of the Championship table with 70 points after 37 league matches, six-clear of third-placed Fulham with just nine matchdays to go.
In the ongoing campaign, Diangana—who is West Ham’s academy product—has been a real star performer for the Albion where he has five goals and six assists to his name in just 22 appearances in all competitions.
West Ham fans will hope that the chance to play regular first-team football has helped Diangana improve and that the young attacker can play a role in David Moyes squad in 2020-21.
