I think we'd be insane not to get him back. We're crying out for pace and a goal threat. Antonio is all we've got in terms of pace and power but is getting injured. I know Grady is a different player but Jesus christ he's our player and something we really need. That said I know we specialise in stupid.

I don't see him making the side with any regularity this season. He has pace yes, but he's not the all-around player Fornals or Anderson is, even Snodgrass provides a specialist skill set with his set pieces and all 3 are better at defending. We are crying out for pace in the middle of the pitch far more than from our wingers. Grady is best served staying where he is for the rest of the season then hopefully being in the mix for the first wing player off the bench next season.

having sent Holland and Coventry on loan we should have recalled diagana and Cullen back. Cullen would get in ahead of sanchez and grady would offer something different . he would have come on on Saturday second half against everton when we needed some pace down the wing.
he could have replaced lanzini and played off haller.

a bench of martin cardosa Balbuena masuaka Cullen diagana ajeti would have offered us some alternatives

Cullen on for a tiring noble
grady on for an ineffective lanzini

He will stay there whilst injured.
We wont want to pay wages for another player that cant actually play.
His back injury has been dragging on for a while now, probably better off up there using their physios rather then the ones we have.

GD seems like a very special talent, I worry about this reoccurring hamstring injury though.

Slaven Bilic: West Brom need signings
Albion lost Grady Diangana just three minutes into the clash against Stoke with the winger suffering a recurrence of hamstring injury that prevented him from starting the previous six games.

But Bilic said it was too early to assess the extent of the injury.

"I don’t know - it’s the same leg, the same leg," he added.

"It’s very strange because he is not like that.

"It’s not like we pushed him to come back - we wanted to be double safe with him.

"He played 30 minutes at Charlton."

Cheers guys, they said on TV he had been out for the last six with a back injury.
Typical.

The terms of loans almost always see a player return to the parent club for treatment if an injury is longer term than just a knock. Grady seems to have a problem with his hamstring which is a month minimum, most times longer. He'll be back with us for treatment in that case.

Dunno, WBA were prepared to pay a "substantial" loan fee. They will desperately need him later in their promotion push. They'll keep him on I think.

He's not saying that they would cancel the loan. The player's treatment is handled by the loaning club's medical team. So Grady will likely be back in London seeing our doctors and rehabbing with our physio team until he is ready to begin training, then he'll go back to West Brom.

West Brom eager for attacking reinforcements
Albion have stepped up their bid to land attacking reinforcements following the news Grady Diangana is set to be sidelined for at least a month.
Image
Diangana – who first injured his hamstring in the win over Blues on December 14 – suffered a recurrence of the problem just three minutes into Monday night’s clash with Stoke.

The West Ham loanee underwent a scan yesterday to determine the extent of the injury. But Hammers boss David Moyes said he expects the winger to be sidelined for at least a month.

Albion have failed to win a league game since Diangana was forced to come off at St Andrew’s.

And now he is injured again, the Baggies are ramping up their efforts to bring in attacking reinforcements this month.
While Diangana’s injury is a huge blow for Albion, the positive news is the Baggies now look set to keep him for the season at a much-reduced rate.

West Ham have the option to recall the winger from his loan any time before January 27.

And with the Baggies desperate to keep him, they were squeezing Albion for extra cash.

The two clubs had been in discussion over a £1.5million deal that would keep Diangana at The Hawthorns for the rest of the campaign. But that deal will now have to be renegotiated, with the 21-year-old set to miss the next six league games at the very least.

Moyes also confirmed Diangana’s latest injury means it is unlikely he will now be recalled.

“It was a big consideration,” Moyes said when asked if he had considered recalling the winger. “His injury has put paid to him coming back. We are short of players just now and it’ll be maybe a month’s time when he’s recovered. He’ll probably stay there until the end of the season.”

Not always the case, generally for long term injuries yes but this one may be agreed he can stay with WBA, so that the coaching staff and medical staff can have a clearer reporting line with him.

He ain't the answer to our problems and it's not even worth worrying about.

Slaven Bilic provides injury update on Kieran Gibbs and Grady Diangana
Slaven Bilic says Albion are taking extra care with Kieran Gibbs as they guide him back from injury – while Albion’s head coach also revealed he expects to have Grady Diangana back in March.
Image
Diangana is currently sidelined with a back/hamstring injury. But Bilic is excited to have the winger back for the run-in.

“Grady’s further (away) than Kieran,” the head coach added.

“But look Grady should be back, we’re talking about the beginning of March, let’s say.

“Grady should be back for the last seven, eight, nine, 10 games, if we’re lucky, and that’s a lot of games.”

Slav probably knows full well the condition and quality of our medical and training facilities, and maybe accordingly he pushed for Grady to stay with WBA
