West Ham captain Mark Noble has hit out at the club for selling young talent Grady Diangana to West Brom.

Hammers supporters have hit out at the club for offloading the 22-year-old, who has been sold for around £18m.

Diangana spent last season on loan at West Brom, impressing Slaven Bilic.

But Noble isn't happy, making his feelings known on social media, tweeting his anger over the transfer.

"As captain of this football club I’m gutted, angry and sad that Grady has left, great kid with a great future!!!!!" he wrote, in response to the club's official tweet regarding a move.

West Ham fans are fuming with the decision but have backed Noble and his honesty.

The club captain may now face a tense conversation with club chiefs.

Diangana, though, is clearly excited about a return to the Hawthorns.

“I learned a lot over the last 12 months. It was a learning process and I shocked myself (with how well I did)," he said.

“I’m looking forward to pushing on and improving more. I know I can bring more to the game and to the team.

Mark Noble slams West Ham's decision to sell young talent in explosive tweets

“I’m still young and last year was like my first season in senior football. I feel I am only going to get better. I believe in the style of football we play under Slaven.

“West Ham was all I had known before last season and I’m sure people will understand that I felt some sadness at leaving.

“But coming here having had that season we have just experienced, there were no nerves about leaving at all. Knowing the manager and the players and the feelings I have got for the club just made me excited.”

West Brom sporting director Luke Dowling said: “Last year was Grady’s first proper season really and more football than he had ever played before.

“When you are a sprinter like Grady and you’ve got players kicking lumps out of you it is a tough experience.

“We all saw how Grady handed it and now we’re all excited to see him step up to the next level. He’s a player we know our supporters love and we are all thrilled to have been able to get this deal done.”
