West Brom have had a £12 million bid accepted for Grady Diangana, according to reports from the Telegraph.
Slaven Bilic will have been keen to secure the services of Diangana, who impressed while on loan with West Brom last term.
The winger joined on a season-long loan deal from the Hammers in August 2019 and went onto play a pivotal role as the Baggies were promoted back to the top flight at the first time of asking.

Diangana played in 30 of West Brom’s 46 Championship outings. He provided eight goals and a further seven assists to finish the season as his side’s joint third top scorer behind Charlie Austin and Hal Robson-Kanu.

It is somewhat surprising that West Ham appear to be so willing to let Diangana leave. It was expected that the winger would receive a chance in the Hammers first team this season.
Diangana has even been impressing during pre-season for the East London side. He recently set up a goal in one friendly and their record signing, Sebastien Haller, was quick to praise the youngster.
He told the Birmingham Mail: “It’s nice for us to have a kind of player like Grady. Everyone knows the quality he has and then he went on loan to West Brom and everyone knows he performed pretty well.
“We are all happy to have him here and we are going to try to use his quality and strength, me most of all.”
With West Brom’s deal for Diangana nearing completion, their Premier League squad is coming together well ahead of the new season.
The England U21 international will be Bilic’s 2nd signing of the summer after Matheus Pereira’s loan deal was made permanent from Sporting Lisbon.
