Former West Ham loanee Jonathan Calleri snapped his La Liga goal drought by scoring a winner for Las Palmas at the weekend.

Calleri spent last season on loan at West Ham but failed to win over Slaven Bilic.

West Ham elected not to re-sign him, and he moved to Spain on loan instead.

He began this season terrifically for Las Palmas, scoring two goals in his first three games.

This prompted early questions over whether West Ham had somehow made a mistake in failing to use him properly.

Recent months though have suggested West Ham did little wrong, with Calleri struggling mightily in front of goal in Spain.

He has been stuck in a run of 11 games without scoring a goal, in which he played the full 90 minutes in eight of them.

This weekend he was back on the scoresheet, scoring the winner over Real Betis in a 1-0 victory.

His three goals in 13 games may not be spectacular, but it has already exceeded his one goal tally for West Ham last season.
