West Ham land Marseille’s Amalfitano

West Ham United secured the services of Olympique Marseille midfielder Morgan Amalfitano late on transfer deadline day, The Guardian has confirmed.

The 29-year-old is West Ham boss Sam Allardyce’s ninth capture of a busy transfer window, after the arrivals of Alex Song, Carl Jenkinson, Enner Valencia, Diafra Sakho, Cheikhou Kouyaté, Diego Poyet, Aaron Cresswell and Mauro Zárate.


Amalfitano spent significant spells with Sedan and Lorient before joining Marseille on a free transfer in 2011. He made 87 appearances in all competitions for the Côte d'Azur giants, earning a solitary cap for the French national team in a 2-1 friendly win in Germany in February 2012.


However, he found himself out of favour at Stade Vélodrome and was loaned out to West Bromwich Albion for the 2013/14 season. He made 30 appearances for the Baggies and scored four goals, including the opener in their notable 2-1 Premier League win over Manchester United at Old Trafford.


He cited his experience at the Hawthorns as crucial to his decision to join the Hammers this week, saying: “I enjoyed my first year in English football and for that reason I have come back and hopefully I can improve again. The first year was good for my experience and I will try to help West Ham now by giving my best and continue to improve in this league. I like this country and this is the best league.”


Amalfitano has agreed a one-year contract at the Boleyn Ground.
