Moses Makasi loaned to Plymouth Argyle

Moses Makasi has joined Plymouth Argyle on loan

 

West Ham United midfielder Moses Makasi has joined EFL League One club Plymouth Argyle on loan until the end of the season, subject to Premier League approval.

The 22-year-old came through the Academy of Football, graduating in the summer of 2014 and establishing himself as a regular in the Development Squad and U23s in recent seasons.

A leader on the pitch, Makasi has made 66 Premier League 2 appearances, won the U21 Premier League Cup in 2016 and promotion via a Play-Off victory at Newcastle United in May last year.

The home-grown player has captained the U23s nine times, scored in a Checkatrade Trophy win at Swindon Town and has been named on the first-team bench on five occasions this season, most recently for both Emirates FA Cup third-round meetings with Shrewsbury Town.

Makasi will join a resurgent Plymouth side who have won five of their last eight League One matches to rise from bottom of the table in late October to their current position of 13th.

The Hammers loanee could make his debut for the Devon club at home to promotion-chasing Blackburn Rovers on Saturday.

We wish Moses all the best for his loan spell at Home Park.
