As far as loans go, Grady Diangana’s temporary spell with West Brom looks like an absolute masterstroke. The young winger has started life in the Midlands at a canter since arriving from West Ham over the summer, and his fine form has been rewarded with a call-up to the England U21s set-up, as confirmed by the Three Lions via Twitter. For his part, it is only what Diangana deserves after a genuinely impressive start to life in the Championship. So far this term, the 21-year-old has hit three goals in two starts and two substitute appearances, and is currently averaging two shots on goal, 1.5 successful dribbles, and 1.5 key passes per game, as per Whoscored. It is easy to see, therefore, why he has been given the nod to come into the squad alongside QPR’s Eberechi Eze after a couple of injury withdrawals. As for the Baggies, they will be worried that his eye-catching form convinces his parent club to recall him early. A similar thing happened with Harvey Barnes last season, and when he returned to Leicester City, their promotion hopes suffered a serious dent. Wherever he ends up finishing the season, however, it’s fair to assume that Diangana has a big future ahead of him, and maybe even one at international level too.
