Amalfitano signs to West Ham from Marseille on a three-year deal for £1 million. The French midfielder arrives in London after falling out with the coach at the former club after punishing him for refusing to train away from the senior squad. He has Premier League experience having played at West Brom on a season-long loan deal. He is capped once by France and has scored four times in 31 league games.
I enjoyed my first year in English football and for that reason I have come back and hopefully I can improve again.The first year was good for my experience and I will try to help West Ham now by giving my best and continue to improve in this league. I like this country and this is the best league.
