The Daily Mail has followed up its explosive Tony Henry E-mail story by publishing details of the regions from which Premier League clubs buy their players.
Henry sparked a race row by allegedly admitting the club did not want to sign any more African players because ‘they can cause mayhem’.
Yet the record shows that the Hammers are in joint second place with Arsenal, Liverpool, Newcastle United having signed 15 from the continent since 1992 and currently have seven on their books.
Tottenham Hotspur have signed the largest number at 19.
A quick Google shows that the players who have joined us since the arrival of the PL are:
Marc Vivien Foe, Alex Song, Rigobert Song (all Cameroon), Herita Ilunga (DR Congo), Mido (Egypt), John Pantsil (Ghana), Titi Camara, Kaba Diawara (both Guinea), Guy Demel (Ivory Coast), Frederick Kanoute, Modibo Maiga (both Mali), Marouane Chamakh, Manuel de Costa (both Morocco), Emmanuel Emenike, Victor Moses, Victor Obinna (all Nigeria), Demba Ba, Henri Camara, Mo Diame, Cheikhou Kouyate, Diafra Sakho (all Senegal), Benni McCarthy (South Africa).
