One Or The Other Of Two Loanees May Re-Join On Loan

One of two players who had successful loan spells at West Ham United but currently find themselves out of favour with their own teams could potentially make a return to the club. Victor Moses is considering his Chelsea future after falling down the pecking order since Maurizio Sarri arrived at the club as head coach, the winger who was an ever present in the first team under Conte has struggled to make an impact under new manager Maurizio Sarri and is open to leaving the club in January
the 27 year old became a key player under Antonio Conte as a wing back after having been recalled from West Ham but has now he fallen behind Eden Hazard, Willian and Pedro after being moved further up the pitch to play as a winger.

Moses was part of the inspirational 'last season at the Boleyn' team that just missed out on a Champion's League place, and some would argue that he was never effectively replaced, without being disrespectful to Michail Antonio or Robert Snodgrass Moses represents a far superior option as he can operate on either flank and knows how to put in a good cross at the end of a lung bursting run, it should not be underestimated how much being at West Ham influenced Moses who had been loaned out all over the place before finally living up to his potential under the guidance of Slaven Billic.

Bearing in mind Hammers' atrocious injury list and palsity of midfield re-inforcements, another player definitely on the radar is João Mário who came on loan from Inter last season and very quickly adapted to the Premier League, he became instantly popular with supporters given his energetic and commited performances in the Claret and Blue. Mário was on Pellegrini and Husillos's list of players that they had drawn up but Inter Milan were unwilling to do another loan deal, preferring to sell the player outright. Unfortunately things haven't panned out well for Inter or João Mário, the club were unable to do any deals for the player who is now not playing in the first team and looks unlikely to feature prominently in any more, this course of events will further devalue the price of the player who Inter paid Sporting Lisbon €40 million plus €5 million in bonuses for back in the summer of 2016.

Both Victor Moses and João Mário have already experienced the 'West Ham way' and as such would not represent much of a risk if either were brought in on loan during the January transfer window, João Mário probably represents the more realistic of the two options and a second loan spell at the London Stadium could be the precursor to the move being made a permanent one at the end of the Season. The situation with Moses is slightly different in that there is so much strength in depth at Chelsea that once a manager doesn't 'fancy' a player their chances of first team action become extremely limited, usually the best they can hope for is a place on the bench and the odd cup game, NOT what Moses wants at this stage in his career.

West Ham's 'injury curse' isn't going to go away soon, in an ideal World Manuel Pellegrini would bring both players to the London Stadium just to cover his options, but unfortunatley Premier League rules will prevent more than one player coming in onloan unless there is movement in the other direction. Both Chicharito and Andy Carroll are in the club's transfer 'drop zone' and based on their current contributions will not be sorely missed at all, both are paid massive wages for doing 'out'!

Either Moses or Mário would bring that extra bit of energy the team seems to be lacking at the moment and would in turn empower the fans who have now started to make the London Stadium a fortress, warts and all. The pieces of the Jigsaw are all there, and in Manuel Pellegrini the club not only have a World Class manager but a man players believe in and who is a person that potential recruits would very much like to work with, as we keep saying "Time and patience will tell inthe end, just keep the faith!". - Ed

And straight away I thought yeah get him back on loan and buy in the summer as for Mario I am not sure the board will put out anymore money for players until some of our regulars in the treatment room are moved on.

You're picking on Chico. Play him properly and he'll score goals. So will the big fella. Judging by all the injuries we get, maybe he isn't to blame for his persistant injuries.
