Mohamed Diame: No bid from Arsenal for West Ham midfielder

The Senegalese only joined the Hammers during the summer but he has been linked with a January departure after it was revealed a clause in his contract could allow him to leave for just £3.5m.

Arsenal have had a disappointing first half of the season and are sixth in the Premier League table, 21 points behind leaders Manchester United and six points off fourth-place Spurs.

So Gunners manager Arsene Wenger is expected to reinforce his squad during the transfer window, with a move for Diame suggested.

But Allardyce said: "You are always worried about losing players but we have not had a bid from Arsenal for Mo Diame. I can't see where he would fit into their side."

Allardyce is also hoping to bring in more new players during January, with Blackburn left-back Martin Olsson on his list.

But after an initial enquiry, Allardyce revealed: "We have not made any further bids for Martin Olsson."

put Ince in my fantasy football team, so it's no surprise at all really. I do that to players. Also responsible for De Jong and Upson being injured. Think I'll transfer in Di Maria just to ruin United....
