West Brom fans react to West Ham loanee Grady Diangana's debut

Grady Diangana of West Ham in action during the Pre-Season Friendly match between West Ham United and Athletic Bilbao at the Olympic Stadium on August 03, 2019 in London, England.

West Ham United youngster Grady Diangana made his West Bromwich Albion debut having joined the Baggies on loan this summer.

West Bromwich Albion sign Grady Diangana on loan from West Ham United on August 8, 2019 in West Bromwich, England.

A number of West Brom fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Grady Diangana's display in the Baggies' Carabao Cup defeat to Millwall on Tuesday, with many lauding the West Ham loanee.

Diangana completed his move to the Hawthorns on the final day of the summer transfer window, but was missing from the squad that drew with the Lions in the Championship at the weekend.

 

Unfortunately for the winger, his bow for Slaven Bilic's men ended in a defeat. Fellow deadline day signing Charlie Austin broke the deadlock inside nine minutes, but Neil Harris' men scored either side of the break to book their place in round two.

The result was a disappointing one for the West Brom fans, but Diangana appeared to provide one of the few positives with his performance against their Championship rivals.

Slaven Bilic the head coach

The 21-year-old looked dangerous throughout the 70 minutes that he spent on the pitch, and made a key contribution as his effort from the edge of the box led to Austin's goal as the goalkeeper could only parry the ball onto the bar, leaving the striker with the simple task of nodding it home on the goal line. 

And plenty of supporters on social media have insisted that Bilic should keep Diangana in the starting lineup for Saturday's clash with Luton at Kenilworth Road as he was one of the players who can feel content with the impact that he made in the defeat.
