West Brom: Journalist drops Diangana transfer claim

West Brom: Journalist drops Diangana transfer claim -Championship News

It won’t come as a surprise if West Brom allow Grady Diangana to quit the club this summer, according to Midlands football reporter Josh Holland.

The Lowdown: Limited game time

The 24-year-old put pen to paper on a permanent five-year deal with the Baggies in 2020 following a successful loan spell the season before, but has since failed to reach the expectations set of him and hasn’t really been given a chance under Steve Bruce, having made just 15 Championship appearances for the new boss this season.

Five of those appearances were for just eight minutes or less, and as a result of clearly not being able to impress the Albion manager, Holland believes Diangana could be just one of a handful of senior first-team players to exit the Hawthorns during the upcoming transfer window.

The Latest: Departure on the horizon?

During an interview with Football League World, Holland claimed that the midfielder’s time at West Brom looks like it might be over.

He said: “I think Diangana is a weird one because we all know how good he is, but whether he’s happy at West Brom and whether he wants a move away is another thing.

“I think if Diangana left, not many people would be surprised.”

The Verdict: Great potential with a different team

The Congo-born talent did show plenty of promising signs during his loan spell with the Baggies, making 15 goal contributions in 30 appearances in all competitions, hence why they were keen to retain his services, but unfortunately, it just hasn’t worked out since then.

The maestro was once described as being a “dangerous” player in the final third by Premier League legend Pablo Zabaleta, and still has lots to give to the right team, but it doesn’t seem like that particular club will be the Midlands outfit.

Should the hierarchy be able to sell Diangana and get a good fee for him in the summer, this tasty sum could be put towards some much-needed transfer funds so that Bruce has the chance to rebuild his squad ahead of the start of the new season in a bid to make a serious promotion push next term.
