In our Loan Watch feature series, the Football Transfer Tavern takes a look at how a selection of players from a particular club are faring whilst they are away from their parent side, and provide a brief update regarding their form.
Here are reports on a trio of West Ham United players currently out on loan, with goals, an assist and a Man of the Match performance being on the agenda, as all the players went on to secure wins for their temporary clubs.
Grady Diangana – West Bromwich Albion
Grady Diangana was a vital part of West Bromwich Albion’s 4-2 victory against Cardiff City, being named Man of the Match by WhoScored, with a rating of 8.5.
He assisted Matheus Pereira’s opener with a one-two pass, before adding the game’s second with a superb strike from outside the box, as shown in the highlights video on the West Bromwich Albion YouTube channel.
This result keeps Slaven Bilic’s side top of the Championship, ahead of runners-up Nottingham Forest by one goal.
Jordan Hugill – Queens Park Rangers
Jordan Hugill came off the bench in the 61st minute to help Queens Park Rangers secure a 4-2 win against Blackburn Rovers.
Having come on with the score at 3-1, the striker scored QPR’s final goal of the game, when he rose above the opposing defenders to head the ball out of Christian Walton’s reach, as shown in the highlights video on the Queens Park Rangers FC YouTube channel.
Martin Samuelsen – Haugesund
Martin Samuelsen helped Haugesund earn a 2-1 win against Rosenborg, playing in Niklas Sanberg to score the opener, before going on to notch the winner with a well-taken side-footed volley that he guided into the bottom corner.
This was the 22-year-old’s fourth goal in three games, with the indication being that he is hitting form at the right time, with Haugesund’s cup semi-final coming this month, as per West Ham’s official website.
It is great to see Samuelsen hitting some form, especially after the difficulties he has endured during his various loan spells away from East London.
Hugill is showing serious improvement, having already scored the same number of league goals as he did last season, while Diangana has put his quality on display once again.
It says a lot about the loanees’ success this weekend that Sead Haksabanovic didn’t feature after scoring in a 4-4 draw.
