West Ham sell Diamanti to Brescia
Tuesday 24 August 2010
West Ham have confirmed the sale of striker Alessandro Diamanti to Italian side Brescia.
The Serie A new boys have paid 2.2million euros (£1.8million) for the 27-year-old, who joined the Hammers a year ago from Livorno.
Another 300,000 euros (£245,000) will be payable if Brescia secure their top-flight status for another year.
Diamanti scored eight goals in 29 appearances last season, with four coming from the penalty spot.
With Avram Grant having replaced compatriot Gianfranco Zola as manager, the Italian was seemingly behind Carlton Cole, Luis Boa Morte and Frederic Piquionne in the pecking order.
He made a brief appearance from the bench in the first match of the season against Aston Villa but was keen to move back to his homeland.
West Ham have today been linked with a move for Lorient striker Kevin Gameiro.
