There has been a transfer update at West Ham United, although it is not about a player coming in but one possibly leaving as it is being reported that Grady Diangana could depart.
According to The Telegraph, and as tweeted out West Ham Central, the Hammers have accepted a bid of around £12m for the player from West Bromwich Albion, who have just been promoted to the Premier League.
The Baggies know the winger well as he was on loan at them in the Championship last season, and he performed well as he scored eight goals and provided seven assists in 30 appearances, per Transfermarkt.

He also managed on average 1.6 shots, 1.4 key passes and 2.4 successful dribbles per game, via WhoScored, and he showed plenty of attacking intent and potential for West Brom last season. Also, at at 22 and developing rapidly as a player following his best campaign in 2019/20, it seems a risky decision to let him leave for a fellow Premier League side for such a price, and a lot of Irons fans are not at all happy with the news.
Here is what these Hammers fans said following the update on Diangana:
West Ham have ACCEPTED a £12m for Grady Diangana from West Brom.

If this is true I’m actually done, no more going to games or buying shirts. Nothing to give even a penny to those leeches that are destroying the club.

I’d probably accept selling him for at least 20mil but this is just insanity

Can’t be true? He’s worth more than that and we want him playing for us
