West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce admitted relief keeping hold of Momo Diame.

Ass the clock ticked past 11pm, Big Sam cracked open a bottle of brandy and poured himself a large one in celebration.

He revealed: "Everything could have changed in the flick of a text, an email or a phone call, so it's a massive relief Diame is still here.

"When the deadline passed, I must admit I celebrated with a glass of brandy."
