Diame determined

Mohamed Diame has reiterated his desire to help West Ham United end the season on a high.

The skilful midfielder put in a tireless shift at West Bromwich Albion on Saturday but sadly could not stop West Ham United going down to a 1-0 defeat. The Senegal international now wants to help the Club in the huge London derby with Tottenham Hotspur at the Boleyn Ground on Saturday and has sought to clarify that he is happy to play wherever he is needed by the manager.

Diame said: "Like every other player in the squad, I want to do all I can to make our results better. I know that both personally and together we could be playing better and I am happy to take my place in the team wherever the manager wants me to play.

"Although I enjoy being able to use my skills, I know I have an important job to do for the team and that is the most important thing to me. I have enjoyed showing the West Ham fans what I can do and I hope I can create many more happy memories for them.

"We were all frustrated to not get a result at West Brom on Saturday but we have a perfect chance to put it right against Tottenham on Saturday. We will be doing all we can to put on a show and win in front of our fans."

Diame and his team-mates were back at Chadwell Heath on Sunday morning, going through a recovery session following Saturday's game and training ahead of next weekend's London derby with Tottenham Hotspur at the Boleyn Ground.
