Wigan midfielder Mohamed Diame has agreed to join West Ham, the newly promoted side announced on their official website.
The Senegalese midfielder has less than a month left on his deal with the Latics and he will join the Hammers when his contract expires on 1st July.
The combative midfielder has been in talks with the newly promoted side for a couple of weeks and he has finally agreed a three-year deal.
Diame has become West Ham’s third signing this summer, following the captures of Jussi Jaaskelainen and Stephen Henderson.
“I’m very happy and very excited to have joined the club and I’m looking forward to the start of the season,” Diame told club’s official website.
“I know the fans here get behind the team all the time and I’m looking forward to showing everybody what I can do on the pitch.”
The Senegalese international joined Wigan Athletic in a €3 million deal from Rayo Vallecano in August 2009, and quickly become an important member of the squad at DW Stadium.
However, Diame lost his place in the side near the end of last season and subsequently opted against extending his deal with the Latics.
