Karren Brady voices West Ham's clear opinion on loan signings

Karren Brady has defended the Premier League loan system.

West Ham United vice-chairwoman Karren Brady has told The Sun that the Hammers continue to support the loan system despite calls for change.

With Chelsea now having over 30 players in their ranks that have been loaned out to other clubs, supporters and pundits have been growing increasingly frustrated with the Blues perceivably collecting talent so rival teams can't sign them.

The likes of Mohamed Salah, Marco van Ginkel and Christian Atsu have all been loaned out by Chelsea, who have benefited from this system before having sold Romelu Lukaku after loan spells with West Bromwich Albion and Everton.

However, amid PFA chief Gordon Taylor's comments to The Mirror about Chelsea 'warehousing' players, West Ham have now vowed to support the loan system.

Vice-chairwoman Karren Brady has told The Sun that, having overseen the loan signings of Alex Song, Carl Jenkinson, Victor Moses - a Chelsea-owned player himself - and Manuel Lanzini, West Ham are committed to the loan system in the Premier League.

"We are grateful at West Ham for the loan system, something I personally campaigned for and got the Premier League to adopt," said Brady.

"So I am not about to join the criticism players’ union chief executive Gordon Taylor is voicing. We’ve borrowed Alex Song, Carl Jenkinson, Victor Moses and Manuel Lanzini, so why should I," she added.

Brady's comments may suggest that, even with the rising TV money in the Premier League, West Ham will continue to look for calculated loan deals in the near future.
