WBA’s Diangana hopes killed off

Hopes among West Brom fans that manager Slaven Bilic could sign Grady Diangana automatically should they secure promotion from the Championship have been killed off by West Ham.

The Irons loanee has been in fine form for the Baggies scoring three goals and putting in a series of good performances as the club has risen to fifth position under the former Irons boss.

Grady has become a terrace favourite after appearing seven times and already the fans have been calling in social media for him to become a permanent signing should the club return to the Premier League.

However, they face two problems as ClaretndHugh has learned there there is no option to buy in any circumstances and a release clause, which could see him return in January anyway, is also attached to the loan.

It is certainly not a given – as is the case with Josh Cullen at Charlton – that Grady will be at the club for he entire season and there is little chance of the club parting with one of it’s most promising youngsters at the end of it anyway.

West Ham are keeping a very close eye on loanee Josh Cullen as he continues to ply his trade at Charlton this season.

He was very close to remaining as part of the Hammers squad this season until the manager accepted that another year in the Championship would be a good idea.

Cullen’s contract ends at the end of the year but Pellegrini could opt to offer him a new deal with Carlos Sancjez coming to the end of his time at the club next summer.

Cullen – who has been discussed as a possible Mark Nob;e replacement in time – has made seven appearances for the Addicks who are in ninth place just four points off the top of the Championship.

Sanchez, meanwhile, has been very much an occasional Hammers player since he arrived on a £40k a week deal and is one of those who could be moved on in January if any clubs were interested in taking the Colombian.

And that could even see Cullen return in January given he has a recall clause in his contract between January 1 – 14.

Cheers Alan.

Don't think I'd be too gutted to see Sanchez on his way, tbh. Not sure Cullen is a Nobes replacement either... we need somebody tasty alongside Declan or he'll go walkabout.
