West Ham to sue over Diamanti

West Ham co-owner David Gold has revealed the club is to sue Brescia for money they are owed for the sale of Alessandro Diamanti to Brescia two years ago.

Diamanti, 29, was sold to Brescia in 2010 for £2 million, just a year after joining the Hammers for £6 million from Livorno. But the Hammers have never been paid by the Italian outfit.

In July 2011, West Ham had asked the Italian Football Federation to suspended Diamanti's registration as they had not received the latest installment of the fee.

The move to take legal action followed Brescia selling 50% of the player's ownership to Bologna for €1.5 million, without West Ham receiving their payment.

West Ham co-owner David Gold said on Twitter: "We sold Diamanti to Brescia because he was desperate to return to Italy. He was then sold to Bologna. We are suing Brescia for the money."
