It would be an understatement to say that Grady Diangana has left an impression on Southampton supporters after joining the club on loan from West Ham, and a permanent move for the youngster is being reported.
West Ham want at least £20M for Grady Diangana if Albion wish to sign him permanently.
Alan Nixon reported that the Baggies were preparing a £10M bid on Wednesday for the highly-rated winger.
Grady is currently on loan until the end of the season.

According to The Birmingham Mail, the Baggies would have to offer Diangana’s parent club £20m if they want to sign the England youth international on a permanent basis, with the report stating that West Ham value the 21-year-old attacker highly and consider him a future first-team player.
Should West Brom sign Diangana permanently?
Yes, he has shown his quality
No, have to strengthen in other areas
The prospect of Diangana joining on a permanent basis is a tantalising one for West Brom supporters, and plenty took to social media to voice their support of a move for the youngster but only if the club are promoted to the Premier League this season.
Here’s what lots of West Brom fans had to say on Twitter about a permanent move for Diangana…
If we go up I’d seriously consider that…

If we get promoted then this has to be a priority. He plays like he could be the next Sterling.
Tricky and pacey with a great ability to read the game.
Goals and assists are building into his game.
He’s become better defensively aswell and bizzarly physical for someone his size!

if we go up, worth to spend £20M on him
