Mohamed Diame: The midfielder has a release clause in his contract at Upton Park

The 25-year-old has impressed at Upton Park since completing a free transfer from Wigan Athletic after running down his contract at the DW Stadium.

Senegal international Diame is reportedly attracting attention from a number of clubs and a release clause exists in his contract.

Hammers co-chairman David Gold confirmed the fact on Twitter, as he said: "Diame does have a release clause in his three-year contract. He joined us from Wigan on a free transfer."

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce would not be drawn on the speculation regarding the finer details of Diame's agreement but did admit a big offer would leave the club "powerless".

"I don't disclose players' contracts publicly. There's always a situation where you're powerless to keep a player because of the size of the price," he said.

"You can't turn it down. The chairman says, 'Look, we can't turn that down, Sam - we've got to move him on'."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
