David Gold makes intentions clear on West Ham loan stars, supporters respond

David Gold wants at least two of West Ham's loanees to sign permanently.

West Ham United co-chairman David Gold has taken to Twitter to comment on the future of the club's four loan stars - and wants permanent deals.

The Hammers splashed out for permanent signings over the summer with Dimitri Payet, Angelo Ogbonna and Pedro Obiang all arriving, but a number of players also joined on loan.

Right back Carl Jenkinson returned to the club for another campaign having impressed on loan from Arsenal last season, whilst midfielder Alex Song did the same, leaving Barcelona for Upton Park once again.

Playmaker Manuel Lanzini and Victor Moses have also penned season-long loan deals, and have impressed under Slaven Bilic so far - prompting West Ham fans to ask co-chairman Gold on Twitter whether any of those loan players will sign permanently, and his answer was clear.

Gold clearly wants at least two permanently, and it would appear that Arsenal's Jenkinson would be the most difficult to land on a full-time basis, whilst Moses signed a new contract extension with Chelsea before signing for West Ham.

Still, fans responded to Gold on Twitter, and made it clear that they really want Song and Lanzini to stay at the club for good, though Moses is another popular choice.

Permanent deals for all four players would cost West Ham a huge amount of money in terms of transfer fees and wages, but given the impact they have had at Upton Park, it may end up being money well spent for Gold and Hammers boss Bilic.
