West Ham United have confirmed on their official website that midfielder Diego Poyet has joined Milton Keynes Dons on a season-long loan deal.
Poyet, 20, joined the Hammers from Charlton Athletic last summer, having earned a reputation as being one of the hottest up-and-coming youngsters in the Football League.
The son of former Chelsea and Tottenham star Gus Poyet, Diego played three Premier League games for the Hammers last season, as well as five games in the Europa League qualifiers this summer.
However, Poyet has now been loaned out to Championship side Milton Keynes Dons for the duration of the season, giving him the chance to play on a regular basis.
West Ham fans have been reacting throughout the day after the Uruguayan left Upton Park for a season under Karl Robinson at MK Dons, no doubt filling the void left by Dele Alli, who joined up with Tottenham Hotspur earlier this summer.
Fans fans believe that the decision to let Poyet leave is a bad move - with one fan even going as far to say that it's a 'ridiculous decision'- suggesting that he will be needed over the course of the season, especially with West Ham already looking for a midfielder even before letting one leave.
Others think that the deal gives Poyet the chance to play first-team football which he wouldn't receive at West Ham, in a move which appears to have divided opinion amongst Hammers supporters.
Here are some of the reactions from West Ham fans after Poyet completed his loan move to MK Dons earlier today...
Poyet out on loan again, just don't think the fella can cut it in the Prem, two managers now that don't believe in him #whufc— Damien Murphy (@Damo_84) August 18, 2015
Don't understand why we have let Poyet go out on loan,Noble,Kouyate or Obiang get injured we are left with Oxford and Nolan to pick from— ⚒ AL ⚒ (@6_AaronLee) August 19, 2015
Poyet is a cracking little player. Really think we should keep him around the 1st team set up.— Chris Buckingham (@westhambucky) August 19, 2015
Don't see why Poyet has gone out on loan already though. Should have been kept until Song was totally done and dusted.— Shane Bailey (@ShaneBazTe) August 19, 2015
But regardless, it's a good move for Poyet. He needs regular football in order to progress development. Now he'll have whole season.— Mark Harrison (@MarkHarrison23) August 19, 2015
Meanwhile, Diego Poyet has joined MK Dons on a season-long loan. Good move, should get a lot of Championship game time.— Iron Views (@ironviews) August 19, 2015
Bad move to let poyet go on loan to mk Dons, should be pushing him into the first team picture!— Alex Harman (@AlexHarman95) August 18, 2015
A very naive and ridiculous desicion by Bilic to let Poyet go out on loan. He will be needed.— Liam Richards (@Whu_riggers) August 19, 2015
