Last season, West Bromwich Albion had the pleasure of having a wonderful, young and talented player in the form of Harvey Barnes as a loanee from Premier League outfit Leicester City.
The England Under-21 international was a revelation at the club since his arrival in 2018, scoring nine goals and recording six assists in 26 matched for the Baggies.
He was exciting, brave and ultimately Premier League quality which is why West Brom fans probably weren’t too surprised when Leicester called him back mid-way through the season.
He has since gone on to become a regular starter and solid performer in the top flight.
Exciting brave and, dare we say it, Premier League quality may also be words that can be used to describe Grady Diangana. The winger played two games in pre-season for is permit club West Ham United before being loaned out to West Brom at the start of this season.
The winger has since gone on to score four goals and help with three assists in just his opening nine matches to make him an instant fan favourite with the Baggies supporters.
So, we decided to take to Twitter to ask those same fans who they would rather have between the two in their current starting eleven.
WEST BROM FANS….
If you had the choice, who would you rather have in your West Brom XI?

The results were close, with a few favouring their starlet of last season.

Harvey Barnes although diangana is a great replacement

Have to say Barnes

Others remained faithful to their current in-from winger after his bright start at the Hawthorns.

That’s tough, probably Diangana

I’d probably say Diangana. Looks less ball greedy and has been a bit more consistent for me than Barnes was

One fan couldn’t separate the two and decided to make the easy option.
