Brescia bag Diamanti from West Ham

LONDON - Striker Alessandro Diamanti joined Serie A newcomers Brescia from West Ham United on Tuesday after just a year with the London club.

West Ham's website said Brescia had paid 2.2 million euros for the 27-year-old who scored eight goals in 29 appearances for the Hammers last season.

Diamanti returns to Italy having joined West Ham from Livorno for an undisclosed fee at the start of last season.
