Exclusive: West Brom star Hal Robson-Kanu tips Grady Diangana for the top

Hal Robson-Kanu has tipped highly-rated West Bromwich Albion winger Grady Diangana for the top.

The 22-year-old dazzled as Slaven Bilic’s side stormed their way to Premier League promotion last term.

He previously played for West Ham United, although he enjoyed a loan spell at the Hawthorns last season, before joining the Baggies in one of the biggest transfer sagas of the summer.

The attacking duo combined during a comfortable 2-0 win over Stoke City nearly a year ago after Diangana drew a foul in the box.

And Robson-Kanu’s third goal in four games condemned Stoke to an 11th defeat in 15 games as the Potters had sacked their previous manager Nathan Jones only three days beforehand after a poor start to the season.

Diangana followed that up with a goal and an assist on the final day of the season in a 2-2 draw with Queens Park Rangers as Albion returned to the top flight for the first time following a two-year absence.

Matheus Pereira has ended the season with the most assists in the Championship. What is his final total?

The playmaker is highly-rated by West Ham chiefs including David Moyes – and Robson-Kanu insists the excitement is shared by the Baggies.

Speaking exclusively to Football FanCast correspondent Tom Ward, the 44-cap Wales international claims his teammate has “all the talent” to make it to the very top.

“Grady has all the talent, he’s got electric pace with plenty of tricks left in his locker, so he causes all sorts of issues for defenders.

“He definitely has a bright future ahead of him if he stays focussed and keeps improving in the right areas.

“With a manager like Slaven Bilic, he will receive some great guidance, and hopefully he has a hugely successful season.”

The attacking midfielder has scored one goal in four Premier League games so far, whilst averaging 1.5 shots and 2.3 dribbles per game, via WhoScored.

Despite his heroics, Diangana has yet to receive a call-up to Gareth Southgate’s England squad at the time of writing.
