West Ham seal Diame signing

WEST Ham will sign midfielder Mohamed Diame on a free transfer from Wigan when his contract expires on 1 July.

Diame, 25, has agreed a three-year deal with the Hammers and becomes their third signing after goalkeepers Jussi Jaaskelainen and Stephen Henderson were recruited to offset the departure of England’s Robert Green.

“His potential is really good and he is ready to go and compete in the first team straight away because he’s had three years in the Premier League already,” said West Ham manager Sam Allardyce.
