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'."

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
