Now the player himself has admitted that he is happy to stay at West Ham.
"I know there are people out there saying things about me but I have spoken with the manager and told him that I want to stay here," Diame told the club's official website.
"I know the club want to keep me too so I will continue to give my best for them. I knew when I signed that West Ham were going to make their mark on the Premier League
"Since I came here I am enjoying every game I play on the pitch. I think I made a good choice because I'm very happy at this club."
Diame joined the Hammers from Wigan Athletic last summer and has played 18 league games for them.
