Promoted West Ham United have
agreed to sign Senegal international midfielder Mohamed Diame
from rivals Wigan Athletic on a three-year contract, the Premier
League club said on Wednesday.
The 25-year-old will join the east London side on July 1
when his existing contract expires.
Diame is West Ham's third signing since they secured
promotion but the first outfield player.
"His potential is really good and he's ready to go and
compete in the first team straight away as he's had three years
in the Premier League already," said Hammers manager Sam
Allardyce on the club website.
"He's 25 and can only get better and I hope he can go on to
prove that to me and all of the West Ham United fans. He will be
a very exciting addition to the squad."
West Ham's other two signings are Irish goalkeeper Stephen
Henderson, whose arrival on loan from Portsmouth has become
permanent, and former Finland international goalkeeper Jussi
Jaaskelainen from relegated Bolton Wanderers.
