Oh no, Momo

West Ham's new signing Momo Diame could miss the start of the Premier League season after limping off during Senegal's Olympic Games quarter-final defeat against Mexico.

The Senegalese captain appeared to suffer a hamstring strain late on in the second half of the match, which the Mexicans eventually won 4-2 after extra time.

Having gone in for a challenge close to the half way line, the 25-year-old immediately pulled up sharply clutching his thigh. And just a few minutes later Diame was replaced by Serigne Mbodji as he trudged forlornly down the Wembley tunnel.

Diame, who signed for West Ham in June on a free transfer having decided to leave Wigan at the end of last season cpatained his country during all three of their group games at the competition, which saw the Senegalese accrue five points with two draws and a win.

Diame's new team mate James Tomkins is in the Great Britain squad which faces Korea in the last Olympic Games quarter final fixture later this evening.

''Only at West Ham - all we need is for Tomkins to get injured.''
