Many associated with West Ham were not best pleased with the way the board acted during the transfer window.
They sold two academy prospects in Josh Cullen and Grady Diangana, with the sale of Diangana in particular causing captain Mark Noble to voice his frustration over social media. Former West Ham striker Marlon Harewood has been discussing his thoughts on this Diangana transfer.
What Harewood had to say about selling Diangana
Speaking exclusively to The Transfer Tavern, Harewood spoke about his confusion of the sale. He said: “They have their reasons why they did it.
“He is a fantastic player, you would have thought he would have been a part of West Ham going forward.
“That’s what West Ham need (a player like Diangana), to let someone like that go at the time that you need someone like that and you’re going into the season, is crazy.”
The sale of Diangana could have been a mistake
Despite only scoring one goal for West Bromwich Albion this season, Diangana has shown his quality and that he has potential to improve.
He manages on average 1.1 shots and 1.8 successful dribbles per game, and he has also showcased that he can help the side defend too as he has managed 2.1 tackles a game (WhoScored).
Fans love seeing an academy product excel at the club, and a perfect example of this is Declan Rice. Harewood does have a right to feel baffled by his former side’s actions. The winger is only 22, so has loads of time to grow and he is showing that he can succeed in the Premier League.
