What next for West Ham's loan stars and their futures under David Moyes

Below is a summary of the full article. Click here for the full version or go back to Hammers Live

With the football season crawling to an eventual return in, hopefully, mid-June that will mean some of West Ham’s loan players will be back in action.

No concrete decisions have been made over the Premier League or the Championship yet. Project Restart is hoping to get the Premier League back underway on either June 12 or 19 while the EFL has said that getting the Championship season finished is also the priority. They too have no set date for a comeback.

West Ham currently have five players with first team experience and further aspirations out on loan from east London and they, like all players in England, haven’t been able to get out on the grass to play since March when the league’s were suspended.

Not only will they be looking to help fire their current club to either promotion or a decent league finish, they will also be hoping to make an impression on David Moyes.

Jordan Hugill and Grady Diangana have had good seasons for QPR and West Brom respectively, with WBA in an automatic promotion spot and Rangers chasing a play-off berth.

But do they and the three other players out on loan have a shot at first team football next season with West Ham? We take a look.

Jordan Hugill - QPR

The striker has done well and featured regularly for the Championship side, scoring 13 goals in all competitions this season. He was brought to West Ham by David Moyes in January 2018 and the manager has a decision to make over the striker.

Hugill could be a backup if the club gets rid of Albian Ajeti this summer but that’s probably as good as it could get for Hugill.

That said, if the Hammers are relegated then they have the perfect striker on their books already. It's a very delicate and tough call. Moyes is a fan of Hugill so he may still have a future at the club.

Grady Diangana - West Bromwich Albion

The winger has had an excellent time of it away at the Hawthorns with former Hammers manager Slaven Bilic, so much so that Moyes considered recalling Diangana in January but an injury brought that to a halt.

Diangana will be coming back as Moyes is a big fan and sees the wideman as a big part of the Hammers future.

West Brom would love to have him back again but that’s highly unlikely as he fits the bill for exactly the kind of player Moyes wants. He will see out the Championship season with the Baggies, though.

Josh Cullen - Charlton

The midfielder signed a new contract at West Ham before heading off on another loan but has been namechecked a couple of times by Moyes as potentially sticking around.

It’s hard to see where Cullen fits in though and at the age of 24, will be wanting regular game time that he might not get back in east London. A permanent move away looks likely with plenty of Championship clubs having a look.

That said, if West Ham do get relegated this season then Cullen could well be lining up in the Hammers midfield for the first game of the 2020/21 campaign.

West Ham during the break

Winston Reid - Sporting Kansas City

The defender was hoping to get some much-needed game time having barely played for two years but the pandemic has put pay to that.

The MLS won’t be starting until June 8 at the earliest but Reid’s loan wasn’t due to start until the start of their campaign, whenever that may be, and he is likely to see that through.

The Hammers will have to decide whether to recall him from his loan ahead of the 2020/21 season whenever that may begin or to allow Reid to see out the MLS campaign though the latter seems the more likely option.

Roberto - Alaves

The gaffe-prone Spaniard was shipped out to his homeland in January and has no future in east London under Moyes, who brought in Darren Randolph to be the number two in January to seal Roberto’s fate.

The stopper is out of contract next summer so the club will try and get what they can for him when the next transfer window opens if they can. Either that or he will be loaned out again.
