Diangana has made 17 starts and four substitute appearances this season for the Baggies in the Championship. He has scored five goals and provided five assists so far.
He is a fantastic young talent, and it will be good for him to continue his progress under the watchful guidance of West Brom who are fighting for promotion this season.
West Ham find themselves 17th in the Premier League and are fighting for survival.
