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.
Has Felipe Anderson been a disappointment this season?
Here are reports on a trio of West Ham United players currently out on loan, with an equalising goal, mistaken identity and victory all being included.
Josh Cullen – Charlton Athletic
Josh Cullen was the only Hammers loanee to score during the weekend’s action, as he emphatically tucked away his penalty in the 93rd minute against West Bromwich Albion to secure a 2-2 drawn, as shown in the highlights video on the Charlton Athletic Football Club YouTube channel.
The 23-year-old was named Man of the Match by WhoScored, having made 1 key pass, 3 tackles, 1 clearance, 2 interceptions, 2 dribbles and completing 94% of the passes he attempted throughout the game.
Grady Diangana – West Bromwich Albion
West Brom will have been left frustrated by their draw against Charlton, following the red card and late eqauliser from the penalty spot.
However, Grady Diangana was almost more exasperated than most, as he was initially sent off for Nathan Ferguson’s challenge, though the referee eventually corrected his mistake and kept the 21-year-old on the pitch, where he stayed until being taken off for Chris Brunt in the 88th minute.
He was fairly quiet during the game, as highlighted by the fact that he didn’t make any key passes or dribbles.
Sead Haksabanovic – Norrkoping
Sead Haksabanovic played the full 90 minutes for Norrkoping in their 1-0 win over BK Hacken, a result that means they still have the slimmest hopes of making the European places, as reported by West Ham’s official website.
Operating from the left-wing, the Montenegro international made 1 key pass, was fouled 3 times and made 6 tackles, as per SofaScore.
This was not the best week for West Ham’s loanees from an individual performance basis, with Cullen the only one to truly stand out in their game.
However, there were points picked up which could help their respective temporary sides reach their goals during the campaign.
West Ham fans, can any of these players come back and make an impact for the club? Join the discussion by commenting below…Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
