West Ham get tough with Bresica over alleged non-payment of transfer fee

Alessandro Diamanti striker left West Ham after just one year, hitting eight goals in 30 matches, to join the then Serie A side Bresica in August 2010. But, according to the Hammers, the latest instalment of the £2m transfer fee has not been paid and the Championship club have called on football's governing bodies to intervene.

A statement from West Ham read: "Due to the failure of Brescia to pay the latest instalment fee, West Ham have asked the FIGC (Italian Football Federation) to suspend the player's registration and requested that the national association and Fifa impose sporting sanctions until the matter is resolved."
