Following his arrival at Hull City on transfer deadline day, Mohamed Diame is keen to repay the faith manager Steve Bruce has shown in him.
Diame joined the Tigers from West Ham United, penning a three-year deal, and he can’t wait to get started with his new club once he returns from international duty with Senegal.
“I’m very excited to be here and I have been waiting for this moment to sign,” said Diame when speaking to the Official Website.
“Speaking to the owners, the manager and everybody at the club, I am very happy to be here.
“I want to thank the manager and the owners for showing belief in me and now I will make sure I repay that faith on the pitch.
“I have to go away to play for Senegal, but I am looking forward to returning here next week to get started.
“It’s a new challenge for me and one that I am looking forward to. I want to play football and Hull City do it very well.
“I know that after playing against this team last season. Even in the game when they had ten men, they played really well.
“I’m just looking forward to getting started.”
Diame has fond memories of the KC Stadium having bagged his first goals in English football when playing for Wigan Athletic in their 3-2 FA Cup win over the Tigers in January 2011.
The 27-year-old is now looking for more special moments at his new home.
“I do remember that!” added Diame.
“But now I hope to score for Hull City at the KC Stadium!”
