Report: West Ham won't sign on-loan trio - the right decision?

Upton Park

West Ham have reportedly made a definitive decision on three of their on-loan players.

West Ham United won't be signing on-loan trio Alex Song, Victor Moses and Emmanuel Emenike on a permanent deal, according to Sky Sports.

And the key reasons are mainly fitness related.

Indeed, both Song and Moses have spent long spells out injured this term. For Emenike, however, it's more about a lack of impact, with just two goals in nine games. 

Sky Sports report that the trio will all return to their parent clubs next season.

The right decision?

So are the Hammers making a fair and informed decision?

When it comes to Song, West Ham's thinking is fully justified. The Barcelona man has now enjoyed two campaigns at Upton Park and, while he has had his moments, he has failed to make a definitive impact in east London.

With regards to Moses, Michail Antonio has put him well and truly in his shadow.

Emenike, meanwhile, looked like he had the potential to become a big hit at West Ham but has slowed down of late. The jury is perhaps still out on the striker and the decision could be harshest on him - but the Hammers could well let him go and prioritise a big-money striker signing over the summer.
