West Brom have acquired the services of promising young English winger Grady Diangana from West Ham on a year-long loan deal.
Diangana enjoyed a breakout season with the Hammers in 2018-19 in which the pacy wide-man made his first team debut – going on to play in 21 games in all competitions, scoring two goals.
West Brom are an early favourite to secure promotion back to the Premier League, but replacing the goals of Championship-specialist Dwight Gayle may be an issue.
The addition of Diangana is likely to provide the Baggies with a cutting edge down one flank, with the prospective transfer of Saints marksman Charlie Austin in the advanced stages of completion.
West Brom announced the signing via their official twitter account, noting that Diangana will wear the number 29 shirt.
