Big Sam is not worried about being offered a new contract at West Ham despite his current deal expiring at the end of the season
West Ham live updates
Mohamed Diame has credited the blistering start to his Hull career with a return to his favoured position.
Diame was a deadline day signing from West Ham, costing the Tigers £3.5million, and has already set about repaying manager Steve Bruce's faith.
– Diame speaking to Hull Daily Mail.
I am in a different position to West Ham. I was a winger there. I am now back in midfield where I have played all my life. West Ham is a great club and the fans were always behind me. But I am not a winger.
I have goal targets, too, and playing as a winger meant I couldn't meet that target.
I like Hull as a club. I can see myself doing well here.
Debut goals from Hull pair Abel Hernandez and Mohamed Diame were only good enough for a draw against West Ham as a Curtis Davies own-goal ensured the spoils were shared in a breathless encounter at the KC Stadium.
The home side lost the lead twice, club record signing Hernandez getting the ball rolling with an impeccable first-half header and Diame restoring the advantage against the side he left on transfer deadline day.
In between Enner Valencia had marked his first league start with a blockbuster strike from 25 yards and the 2-2 draw was settled when Diafra Sakho's modest shot evaded Allan McGregor, only for Davies to bundle over his own line.
Micah Richards: "I wanted to play abroad, and at an ambitious club like Fiorentina. Which is why I said no to West Ham."
