Lassana Diarra free to sign

lassana-diarra-real-madridLassana Diarra could be set for a return to the Premier League after FIFA finally cleared him to join a new club according to ESPN claims.

Diarra who trained with West Ham for many months under Allardyce’s reign has been left in limbo after leaving Lokomotiv Moscow last August as he was not able to join another club because of a contract dispute with the Russian club.

The France international claims he was fired by Lokomotiv which left him as a free agent, but administrative issues have prevented Diarra from playing for a new club.

It is claimed Diarra has already rejected an offer from Monaco this summer as he holds out for a Premier League club.

Whether Slaven Bilic revives West Ham’s interest in the 30 year old remains to be seen.

  1. Hippo wanted him,aint sure Slav will.We will see,cant see it myself though 😉

  2. Sign him up with Song… Would be quality! Both free! Plus two-three loans (striker/winger) then get rid of Nolan

  3. \right back

  4. /right back

  5. No brainier, this would be a no fee signing I think?
    As long as wages not too eye watering I believe he will be a great squad addition, like Song last season he hasn’t played competitive football for a long while, but is quite versatile in a number positions from memory seeing him play at Le Arse, Cheski and Pompey.
    Mind you he could be utter toilet now though, lol!

  6. Could cover Song,similar sort of player no fee no injury and well rested,
    Right back ( just joining in )
    Centre Forward/

  7. Seems 30 is the equivalent of peak oil.It’s all downhill after then.Mind you on a free it would be worth looking at.Mind you if he did come and set the stadium alight you know who would be claiming bragging rights?The useless article called Allerdici.

  8. Haha,he would be fine on a free i think.Just whether we actually need yet another midfielder if Song does sign 😉

  9. with all the recent hype of youth and academy this is just what we need another 30 yr old mercenary who can’t get a club.. no thanks

  10. Well if he has actually turned down Monaco…
