Hammers sign 'wardrobe'

Published Add your comment

West Ham have moved quickly to fill the void left by Scott Parker's imminent departure by snapping up former Fulham midfielder Papa Bouba Diop.

The 33-year-old Senegal international, a free agent after leaving AEK Athens, has signed a one-year deal at Upton Park with the option of a further 12 months.

He told the Hammers' website, whufc.com : "I am very happy, It is good to be here. I want to help West Ham go up and hope we can be successful."

He added: "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."

Hammers boss Sam Allardyce moved for Diop just as England midfielder Parker handed in a transfer request to force through a move to Tottenham ahead of Wednesday night's deadline.
