West Ham United have confirmed a loan move for defender Winston Reid to Brentford (West Ham United) – with supporters flocking to this update as they hail this ‘fantastic move’.
The New Zealand international had looked likely to leave east London, with Craig Dawson, Issa Diop, Angelo Ogbonna and Fabian Balbuena all ahead of him in David Moyes’ pecking order.
Reid has now completed a loan move to Championship side Brentford until the end of the season, a West Ham decision which has attracted plenty of attention. He will of course have the chance to fight for promotion with the Bees – they currently sit third in the second tier.
One Hammer waxed lyrical over how ‘gassed’ he is for the Bees to be receiving Reid – with many other supporters dropping their varying verdicts after this development.
Read what they had to say down below, where most of the supporters were just happy to see a player they have much admiration for find a new home where he should receive more playing time.
