The Senegal international heads to the KC Stadium - for an undisclosed fee - after spending two seasons at West Ham.

Diame, who worked under Tigers boss Steve Bruce when the pair were at Wigan, has made 79 appearances for the Hammers since joining them in the summer of 2012.

However, the France-born player has only started one game for Sam Allardyce’s men this season - the penalty shoot-out defeat to Sheffield United in the Capital One Cup last week.  

Bruce has earmarked the recruitment of a midfielder to bolster his squad before the end of the transfer window and has also been linked with a move for Manchester United’s Tom Cleverley.

The former Rayo Vallecano player has moved further down the pecking order at Upton Park following the summer arrivals of fellow battle-hardened midfielders Alex Song and Cheikhou Kouyate.

And Bruce is pleased with his latest signing, saying: “I’m delighted to welcome Mo to the club.

"His experience, both at international level and in the Premier League, will be invaluable as we look to cement our place in the top-flight.”

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
