thumbnail Hello,

The midfielder is relieved to have joined Hull City after being forced to play out of position, and hardly ever in his favoured role, under Sam Allardyce at Upton Park

New Hull City signing Mohamed Diame has launched a stinging attack on former club West Ham for playing him out of position.

The Senegal international ended a two-year stay at Upton Park when he moved to the KC Stadium on transfer deadline day.

However, he believes a move to a bigger club could have been possible had he not been asked to fulfil a host of roles by West Ham boss Sam Allardyce.

"At West Ham I was shunted around all the different positions," Diame is quoted as saying by the Daily Star. "I remember one time I had to play as a striker.

"That was not good for my career. I wanted to play for a club that is high in the Premier League table. At least with Hull I will be certain of playing in my favoured role.

"I should have left West Ham a long time ago, as with them I wasn't permitted to play in central midfield.

"I wasn't able to get the biggest clubs interested in me, as when they came to watch me I'd been put in a position that was not mine.

"You lose your bearings when you get shunted around all the different positions."
