The Hammers hierarchy made the controversial decision to sell the academy graduate to Premier League rivals West Bromwich Albion last summer in an £18m deal.
However, while David Moyes’ men have gone on to have a fabulous season and are currently in contention to finish in the Champions League places, Diangana has struggled to make an impact at The Hawthorns.
Although Gold and Sullivan have often come in for criticism from the fans of the capital club for their decision-making, Thomas and Delaney agree that they got this one correct.
Thomas said: “He [Sullivan] said, there is no regret over selling Grady Diangana. I think we can all agree with that now, no regrets whatsoever.”
Delaney replied: “Well to be fair, that is the point at which people got angriest. And to be fair, that decision has been vindicated. You can’t argue that anymore.”

Gold and Sullivan may not get every decision right, but it’s hard to argue that they haven’t been fully vindicated on this occasion.
