HYS: Can West Ham United keep hold of Issa Diop?

When Manuel Pellegrini became West Ham United manager, he swiftly made a move in the summer transfer window.

The former Manchester City boss strengthened various areas of the pitch, including the midfield, wide areas and defence.

Issa Diop was one of nine new arrivals and since signing on the dotted line the 21-year-old has started 11 Premier League matches.

The Frenchman has had some mixed performances this season, but he has been a mainstay in the back line.

It seems, though, that Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has taken an interest in the defender.

According to theĀ Daily Mail, the Red Devils are keen on signing Diop and are weighing up a move in the January transfer window.

Mourinho is in desperate need for a new centre-back having failed to land any of his targets in the summer.

The pull of United can be difficult to turn down for any player, so with that in mind, will West Ham be able to keep hold of Diop?
