Grady Diangana (on loan from West Ham)
« on: August 07, 2019, 11:56:05 PM »
Think this is close enough to happening to warrent his own thread.

Delighted we seem to be finally addressing the desperate need for a left footed wide player by signing two on the same day. It is striking how similar Diangana is to Pereira.

If he does sign, he doesn't have much to live up in comparison to the performances from our last loan wing signings in Murphy and Montero.

Hopefully can be more of a Barnes...

I've never heard of him to be honest.

Does anybody know what sort of player he is?

Is he a Harvey Barnes or a Matt Phillips etc?

BUSY DAY AT WEST BROM

West Bromwich Albion are close to completing a loan deal for West Ham winger Grady Diangana.

We understand a deal should be completed shortly.

Meanwhile, Albion are also in advanced negotiations with Southampton for Charlie Austin and hope to get a deal over the line before 5pm.

Finally, Matheus Pereira is currently undergoing a medical in London ahead of a move from Sporting.

That’s likely to be a loan too, although the clubs were discussing the possibility of a permanent deal.

The worry is that he played 21 times for West Ham last season, and no-one seems to know much about him.

Then again, we didn't know much about Barnes, did we?

Provided all of this happens, and nobody else leaves, will this be a good window for us? I say yes as I expect at least one of the so called wingers to weigh in with goals

He would probably be a back-up. Behind Phillips, Edwards and the guy from Sporting.

Be surprised if Pelligrini would let him out if he was that far down our pecking order

No way West Ham would let him come if that was the case. He's here to play and I think he will, he is a very good prospect, so all of the above will have to be on their toes to keep him out.

Got a feeling that Billic, and his previous links to West Ham, had a big role to play.

Welcome. A WHU fan friend of mine is very surprised and said he thought he was a shoe in for the match day 18 and a good, direct player.

Good signing. Edwards played well but potentially we can't rely on him and we all know Phillips misses a lot of games and many of his performances are not when 100% fit.

If the fee was very high I wouldn't mind that. Leave it late so the buying club do a thorough medical on and we'll be ok.

Colin is a big fan of his so he may go to cardiff.

I like MP, but he just isn't reliable enough.
