Diamanti happy in England

West Ham forward Alessandro Diamanti has said he expects to stay at Upton Park this season.

Diamanti, 27, was linked with Olympiakos earlier this summer amid reports he is surplus to requirements under new boss Avram Grant, while Brescia, Parma and Fiorentina are also said to be considering a move.

However, while Diamanti admits there has been interest, he says he is happy in the Premier League and does not expect to move on.

"I feel good in England," he told Sky Italia. "This year, I'll almost certainly stay put, although my agents are considering several offers and I am happy to have received interest from other teams."

Asked if he missed the Italian league, he said: "Yes, but I like being here because I feel good."

Diamanti admits he was sad to see Gianfranco Zola dismissed as West Ham boss at the end of last season, however. "The coach was a champion and a great person," he said. "I took his advice with pleasure."
