ExWHUemployee claimed last week that Manchester United defender Diogo Dalot is an option for West Ham this summer, with David Moyes keen to bring him to the London Stadium on loan.

Moyes undoubtedly needs to add a new right-back and left-back to his ranks this summer.
Ryan Fredericks and Aaron Cresswell clearly aren’t good enough to be playing regularly in the Premier League.
Manchester United ace Dalot can play in both of those positions. So bringing the Portuguese star to east London would definitely make sense.
United brought the 21-year-old to Old Trafford from Porto in the summer of 2018 for around £19 million (BBC).
The Portuguese defender has struggled to impress for Manchester United, however, with just 34 appearances to his name in the last two years.
Dalot has played just four Premier League games this season, and he has fallen out of favour with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The former Porto man maybe just needs more regular first-team action in order to establish himself. And perhaps he would get that at West Ham.
Dalot is clearly a real talent, and a loan move to West Ham seems like an ideal outcome for all parties involved.
And some Hammers fans have taken to Twitter in reaction to the claims suggesting that Moyes could bring the Manchester United man to the London Stadium this summer…
Diogo Dalot to West Ham on loan? Yes please.
