"Ridiculous decision" - West Ham fans react on Twitter to Diego Poyet's MK Dons move

MK Dons

West Ham have sent Diego Poyet out on loan to Milton Keynes Dons.

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...
