Diame grabbed healthy Hull rise

diameMohamed Diameis understood to have ‘trousered’ a healthy rise of around £10k to join the club this summer.

ClaretandHugh has learned that Steve Bruce “went all the way” in his pursuit of a player he has admired for a long time.

And Diame is now believed to be on personal terms of around £55k a week.

Diame – who was also hunted by Crystal Palace -eventually joined ambitious City and a  Hammers source said: “With a year left we weren’t going to stand in his way – that wouldn’t have been right.

“With what we were doing in the market, the deal for Diame fitted our situation and my understanding is that he got a hefty increase from Hull of around £10k.”

  1. We all no why he left and in 2 years time he will tell the world how Mr Bruce let him down by not playing him where he wanted to play and some other mug will give him another chance and 10K a week pay rise and the fans will be left shaking there heads like us and the Wigan fans

  2. Spot on bulbs, sick & tried of his whining all about money or a top 4 team.
    Well he got 1 out of 2, perhaps he’ll have better luck next time!

  3. He was ok at playing against the ‘big’ clubs but for a lot of the time he went missing – good luck to him at ‘big’ Hull City – he’ll be competing with guys like Huddlestone, Livermore and others for the midfield spots – good luck with that too!

  4. Wonder how Bruce and the rest of the Hull set up will feel about his whinging, money-grabbing and self admiration…. Oh, and his constant ball hogging and “marauding” runs which invariably culminate in his loss of control/steam/ideas/the ball/all of the previous……
    This isn’t sour grapes despite his attitude towards us as I honestly never rated him, but getting shot is one of the best bits of business we’ve done this summer so jog on! COYI

  5. All three of the above comments are spot on and IMO they sum up the Diame situation nicely.
    With everything now said on the subject I hope now we can finally put this rather boring subject to bed! COYI!
