According to a report from the Sun, the West Ham owners sold Grady Diangana to West Brom against the wishes of David Moyes.

The Hammers seem to be a club in crisis at the moment.

Following the sale of Diangana to West Brom, West Ham fans have been in meltdown on Twitter.

And yesterday’s 5-3 home defeat to Bournemouth didn’t make things any better.

Diangana, 22, was thought to be one of leading players for the Hammers and we all thought he had a big part to play in our future.

And then, David Gold and David Sullivan decided to sell Grady out of the blue for around £20 million earlier this week.

West Ham fans were apoplectic. And rightly so. One of our best young players had just been sold to a direct Premier League rival.

David Moyes couldn’t have been happy either. He hasn’t yet commented on Diangana’s sale. But the Sun have claimed that the 57-year-old Scot’s wish was to keep the winger, before Sullivan and Gold overruled him.

Club embroiled in chaos and anarchy

No wonder we have so many problems at the moment.

There is clearly a player revolt unfolding right before our eyes at the London Stadium. Mark Noble and Jack Wilshere made their feelings known on social media on Friday night, with the likes of Declan Rice, Arthur Masuaku, Sebastien Haller and Issa Diop all either retweeting or liking their teammates’ comments.

Something has to change, and quickly, if next season is to be salvaged. The owners need to be more transparent with Moyes. That goes without saying.

But they also need to be transparent with us fans. There have been too many lies and broken promises over the past few years.

The trust is gone between the fans and the owners.

And according to the Sun, David Moyes might be beginning to feel what that’s like.
