The 27-year-old moved to West Ham from French club Sochaux in the summer of 2012, but he failed to make a huge impression.
Maiga joined Queens Park Rangers on loan in January 2014 for the remainder of the 2013-14 campaign and was sent out on loan at Metz in the summer transfer window for the 2014-15 season.
West Ham co-chairman David Gold has now clarified his situation and claimed that the club did all they could to help him achieve success in the Premier League.
“@westhamtransfer: Why did you treat Maiga so bad? He was given £2m a year and a once in a life time opportunity to play in the PL. dg— David Gold (@davidgold) November 13, 2014
Another West Ham player who is struggling to make an impact is Mauro Zarate. The 27-year-old joined the Hammers in the summer transfer window and has faced fitness issues.
Speaking about Zarate, Gold said that he will get his chance in due time as earning a place in Sam Allardyce’s starting line-up is tough at the moment.
“@nicholls2802: why is zarate not being played? He's been injured and it's hard to get back into a winning side. His chance will come. dg— David Gold (@davidgold) November 13, 2014
West Ham are currently fourth in the Premier League table with 18 points from 11 matches.
