Danny Mills praised West Brom for reportedly planning to offer £3million to West Ham in order to keep Grady Diangana on loan for another season.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Laura O’Leary, the former England international claimed the Baggies wanting to agree on a deal early, made perfect sense from a business perspective.
It was recently reported that West Brom are considering making an offer to keep the winger on loan for next season, regardless of what league they find themselves in.
Mills explained that the potential deal may not be as simple as the Baggies paying £3million to keep Diangana for another campaign, but may see them agree to certain bonuses.
When asked if it is fantastic business to be considering offering £3million to keep the winger on loan for next season, Mills told Football Insider: “Yeah of course it is!
“But there will be caveats put in there if they get promoted, there will be a bonus structure if they go up, or there could be something in place if they stay in the Championship.
“We’re only ever giving titbits of what these deals are, it’s a potential £3million loan deal, how much of the wages do they want to pay? All the wages or half the wages.
“What are the bonuses involved, it’s far more complicated than people see from the outside.
“These deals are incredibly detailed, there’s an awful lot that goes into them if they can get a deal in place, yeah, of course, it makes perfect business sense.”
The 21-year-old winger has featured 22 times this season across all competitions, scoring five goals and registering six assists.
Diangana played less than two minutes of the 1-0 loss to Stoke City on Monday due to him suffering an injury and Slaven Bilic shared the club weren’t sure of the severity of the injury just yet.
