And that has alerted their London rivals to the possibility of bringing Diame to White Hart Lane should they meet his £3.5 million buyout clause, with the player set to cover for the injured Sandro, who will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury.
However, Diame released a statement following West Ham’s 5-1 loss at Arsenal this week, saying:
“I know there are people out there saying things about me, but I have spoken with the manager and told him that I want to stay here.
“I know the club want to keep me too, so I will continue to give my best for them. I knew when I signed that West Ham were going to make their mark on the Premier League. Since I came here, I am enjoying every game I play on the pitch. I think I made a good choice because I am very happy at this club.”
