According to news from club insider ExWHUemployee, via West Ham Central, defender Issa Diop has been utilised as a striker in training under David Moyes – prompting many Irons supporters to discuss this West Ham revelation on social media.
Diop, who is yet to earn back his starting place due to the solid back three of Fabian Baluena, Angelo Ogbonna and Aaron Cresswell becoming a formidable trio, has apparently been placed in a more attacking role behind the scenes.
Should Issa Diop start against Leeds United?
Yes, time for his return
No, current defence doing wonders
Indeed, according to inside source ExWHUemployee, Diop often plays up front in training at Rush Green – and it’s safe to say supporters have had plenty of opinions in regards to this news.
The 23-year-old has been included in the matchday squad for today’s trip to Leeds United, but it remains to be seen whether Moyes opts to start him over an impressing back three.

I would have had Haller taking penalties all week with his left foot. All week. It ain’t that difficult if you practice using it. £40+ million and he can’t use the left foot. Outrageous. ⚒.
