West Ham 'to sue over Diamanti fee'

Published Add your comment

West Ham co-owner David Gold claims the club will sue Brescia for money they say they are owed from the sale of striker Alessandro Diamanti from Brescia to Bologna.

Italy international Diamanti, who scored the winning penalty in Sunday night's shoot-out victory over England in Kiev, signed for the Hammers in August 2009 from Livorno for £6million, but he was allowed to move back to Italy after just one season in the English Premier League.

It is, though, the player's subsequent transfer to Bologna in a co-ownership deal following Brescia's relegation to Serie B that has left the Hammers incensed.
