Diame glad he chose West Ham

West Ham midfielder Mohamed DiameWest Ham midfielder Mohamed Diame believes he made the right decision by joining the club and is happy with life at Upton Park.

The Senegal international arrived in London during the summer after finishing his contract with Premier League rivals Wigan.

It’s believed that multiple clubs offered Diame a contract, but he rejected their advances to sign with the Hammers.

The 25-year-old feels he has made the correct decision and is delighted with life at the club:

“People did say ‘Why are you going to West Ham when you can play in the Champions League?’ but they can see why I did now.” he told West Ham TV.

“It is a very big club in England and I am very happy to be here, now I am hoping that our good performances will continue.

“That is why I came here. When I spoke to the club I knew they were trying to build a very good team.

“We are working very hard every day on the training ground and you can see it is paying off.”

Diame first appeared in the Premier League during 2009, signing for Wigan from La Liga outfit Rayo Vallecano.

He spent three successful years with the Latics, before his contract expired allowing him to move to West Ham on a free transfer.
