Breaking News: Hammers Close To Diame

Breaking news coming from Sky Sports is that West Ham are currently in talks with Wigan’s Mohamed Diame.

Diame is interesting a host of other clubs and is a combatative midfield enforcer which The Hammers are in need of with their first season back in The Premiership looming.

The news comes hot on the heels of an announcement by the club itself that they are close to two of the best bosman transfers available with the other believed to be Jaaskelainen.

Snippet from the WHUFC statement: West Ham United are hoping to bring in at least five new players this summer, with possible targets identified across the field and a particular focus given to bringing in at least two new attacking players. There are currently bids in for two players and talks are also at an advanced stage to sign two of the best ‘Bosman’ transfers available in the Premier League.

This deal would be something of a coup for West Ham as this guy is a quality player and has interested some top clubs ranging from Real Madrid when he was in Spain to Manchester Utd during his Wigan spell. Liverpool looked to be in poll position but now it looks like The Hammers have jumped to the font of the queue.

Lets hope we get our business concluded nice and early and not panic buying on deadline day like most years.
