Premier League: Mohamed Diame welcomes return to central role at Hull City

Mohamed Diame is relishing his fresh start at Hull after returning to a favoured role.

The Senegal midfielder has produced some impressive displays since joining from West Ham in a £3.5m move on deadline day.

He scored a fine solo effort against his former club on his debut and followed up with a fierce long-range strike in Saturday's 2-2 draw at Newcastle.

During his Hammers career, Diame was asked to adopt an unfamiliar wide position, but has been shifted back to the centre under Hull boss Steve Bruce.

"I am in a different position to West Ham," he told the Hull Daily Mail.

"I was a winger there. I am now back in midfield where I have played all my life. West Ham is a great club and the fans were always behind me. But I am not a winger.

"I have goal targets, too, and playing as a winger meant I couldn't meet that target. I like Hull as a club. I can see myself doing well here."

Diame has already forged a bond with Bruce, who pursued him throughout the summer, and wants to justify his faith.

"The manager is good for me. He gives me confidence and I want to pay that back. I like playing for people who believe in you,” said the 27-year-old, who also had spells in Belgium and Spain.

"I have been happy with my performance. I have the confidence of the gaffer and am trying to give him everything back.

"Football is all about confidence and when you have people who believe in you then you play well."
