Moncur joins Jags on loan

West Ham United midfielder George Moncur has joined Scottish Premiership outfit Partick Thistle on loan until the end of the season.  

A Development Squad regular, Moncur made his first senior start in the FA Cup with Budweiser this term, when a youthful Hammers side lost 5-0 to Nottingham Forest at the City Ground.  

The 20-year-old has also made eleven appearances for the Hammers' second string this term, scoring three goals for Nick Haycock's men. Moncur enjoyed a loan spell at League Two outfit AFC Wimbledon in February 2012, netting twice in 20 outings for the Dons.  

Moncur now joins a Jags side who are eleventh in the Scottish top flight, with 21 points from their 24 league outings to date. The Premiership strugglers play host to Dundee United on Saturday.
