West Ham clinch Diop signing on free transfer

West Ham have sealed the signing of former Fulham and Portsmouth midfielder Papa Bouba Diop, who becomes the Hammers ninth arrival of the campaign. The 33-year-old Senegal international was a free agent after being released by AEK Athens, who he joined in 2010.

He has agreed a one-year contract with the Championship outfit, which includes the option of an additional 12 months.

"I am very happy, It is good to be here," said the imposing 6ft 5 midfielder. "I want to help West Ham go up and hope we can be successful.

"English football is the best in the world. I have come here to work hard and give 100% in every game I play for West Ham. I want to show people I am back again."
