Diame was expected to leave Upton Park in January with Arsenal, QPR and Tottenham all reportedly interested in snapping up the impressive midfielder who has a £3.5million release clause in his current Hammers contract.
However no bids were forthcoming on transfer deadline day and Diame stays in the East End as West Ham look to confirm their survival in their first season back in the Premier League.
Hammers owners David Gold and David Sullivan have apparently opened talks with the Senegalese midfielder over a new contract that would improve both his wages and his release clause.
The 25-year-old is not happy with the deal that has been offered to him and is after £80,000 a week in wages from the East London club in order to reject the chance at a cheap summer move.
