Having jumped at the chance to team up with Sam Allardyce once again - the third time the duo have worked together following spells at Bolton and Newcastle - the Senegalese dender, who can also play in midfield joined West Ham in the summer of 2011 following the culmination of his three-year contract at Stoke.
A tough, uncompromising centre-half who has won friends wherever he has played, Faye has also represented Senegal - for whom he has won in excess of 30 caps - since 2004.
