West Ham United's new signing Mohamed Diame can't wait to be kitted up for the new season.

Just moments after signing on the dotted line for the Hammers this week, Diame took a look at the new Macron away kit the team will be wearing this season and was suitably impressed.

West Ham will play Swansea City in their first match away back in the Barclays Premier League on Saturday 25 August.

That fixture will be the first time Sam Allardyce's men will wear the kit in a competitive away match as they look to get off to a winning start on the road in the league. Diame is hoping be in the squad in Wales that day and cannot wait to pull on the new shirt.

"It is a nice shirt, it feels nice and I am very much looking forward to wearing it for the first time in a competitive game, which will be our second match against Swansea."

Season Ticket Holders got the first chance to get hold of the new away kit on Wednesday night at an exclusive Away Kit shopping night at the stadium store. It then went on general sale at 9am on Thursday in all club stores and online.

Diame said he was looking forward to seeing fans wearing the new shirts at the Liberty Stadium after being told of the passionate following the Hammers enjoy away from home, with thousands of fans expected to make the trip west.

"I know the claret and blue colours. They are very famous colours and one of the things people talk about West Ham, they speak of the claret and blue colours. It is nice that these colours have been added to the away shirt, it is a nice touch I think.

"Yes, if you can see our supporters wearing the shirt, it is good especially away from home, it gives you a great feeling and it something else I am looking forward to,"

The shirt is a classic navy V-neck with an asymmetrical claret and blue design, with the famous crossed Hammer detail. There is also further extensive detail, with 'West Ham United' stitching on the back of the collar.

Following fans' feedback at the club's Supporter Advisory Board, the new away shirt has also been designed so it is "Moore than just a football kit". It has been made to be worn for comfort whether it is for leisure on a day out or wearing to cheer on the Hammers.
