West Ham started the season off in disappointing fashion as Manchester City won 5-0 at The London Stadium. But there were better fortunes for some Hammers currently out on loan. Here, we take a look at the six West Ham players currently out on loan and check how they got on this weekend.
Just before the end of the summer transfer window, West Ham sent Cullen back to Charlton Athletic. The Irish midfielder won promotion with the Addicks last season and wasted no time impressing the fans again in the Championship.
Charlton beat promotion hopefuls Stoke City 3-1 at The Valley and Cullen was a standout performer. The 23-year-old central midfielder played a major role in the second and third goals and produced a dominant performance throughout. Charlton now have two wins in two and sit second in the table.
West Ham fans will be forgiven if they have forgotten about Haksabanovic. The Montenegro international is on loan in Sweden after a failed spell with Malaga last season.
But he caught the eye on Sunday, playing a key role in IFK Norrkoping’s win over IF Elfsborg. Haksabanovic provided an assist for Rasmus Lauritsen just before half-time to help his side to a 2-0 win. This lifted Norrkoping to seventh after 19 games (seven points off European qualification) and the 20-year-old now has three assists to his name.
Hugill got off to a flyer last weekend when he scored against Stoke on his Queens Park Rangers debut. But he had a quieter game on his home debut as QPR drew 1-1 with Huddersfield Town.
The 27-year-old played the full 90 minutes as Grant Hall’s late equaliser earned a point for QPR. The West London side now sit fourth in the league with four points after two games.
Samuelsen is another forgotten name among West Ham fans. He is currently in Norway – his home country – after failing to impress in Holland. But he could not prevent a loss this weekend.
FK Haugesund (Samuelsen’s hometown) slumped to a 1-0 loss at home to Ranheim TF in the Eliteserien. Samuelsen was introduced as a substitute on 58 minutes with the score level at 0-0 but could not prevent a loss which keeps his side in eighth place.
Grady Diangana and Nathan Trott
West Brom signed Diangana on loan from West Ham on transfer deadline day. But the 21-year-old missed the chance to make his debut against Millwall. Slaven Bilic left all of his deadline day signings out of the matchday squad as the Baggies drew 1-1 with West Ham’s fierce rivals.
Trott is on loan at AFC Wimbledon but he suffered a muscular injury before the opening game of the season. The goalkeeper was once again not included in the matchday squad as he continues to recover from this injury.
