Hull City secure the services of West Ham midfielder

The Senegal international Mo Diame has moved from West Ham to Hull City for an undisclosed fee, reports the BBC. The former West Ham man has put pen to paper on a three year deal at the KC Stadium, leaving West Ham after a 2 year spell at the East London club.

The centre-midfielder has been brought into Steve Bruce’s side to provide the tigers with extra strength and aggression. A player who became well liked during his time at Upton Park and during a previous spell at Wigan Athletic, he is renowned for his tackling ability, and he has a long-range shot or two in his locker as well.

For the Hammers he played 79 times in all competitions across 2 full seasons, scoring 7 times in total, for Wigan he notched 103 appearances in all competitions, scoring 7 times. At Hull he will become one part of a radically new look side, after a very eventful transfer deadline day for the Yorkshire side.

Diame follows the likes of Jake Livermore and Robert Snodgrass into the team’s midfield, with each of those signings being made at an earlier point of the summer. He also arrives with the likes of Gaston Ramirez and Hatem Ben Arfa, both of which signed for the club within the final few hours of the window.
