Mo Diame is facing a race against time to be ready for Saturdays trip to Leicester City.
The 30-year-old has battled back from rock bottom to become an integral part of the Newcastle squad. Last year, Diame admitted that his time on Tyneside hadn’t gone to plan: "This season has been the poorest of my career. It’s tough mentally. Sometimes you lose a bit of confidence and you lose confidence about how you can play." However, fast-forward 12 months, and Diame is one of the first names on the United team sheet after agreeing with Benitez to revert back to his old, more favoured role, as a midfielder. "I have always said that it is easier to be facing the game than playing with your back to it. So now I am happy." But, Diame is at risk of missing out this weekend after being forced off during the win over Southampton: "I decided to make a change because he was injured," said Benitez. "He’s been really important for us, hopefully, it will be nothing." Apr 5 - 5:41 AM

Reports across England confirm Newcastle have met the release clause of Hull City midfielder Mohamed Diame.

Now it's up to the 29-year-old midfielder on whether he wants to drop back to the Championship with Newcastle and whether he could reach an agreement on terms. The former West Ham midfielder has been a staple for Steve Bruce's side over the past two seasons and his match-winner in th Chanpionship playoff to boost the Togers back into the Premier League will go down in club lore. But with Bruce out as manager several players are reportedly considering their futures at the club and Diame only had one year left on his current contract.

Mo Diame scored a beautiful goal from deep to put Hull City back into the Premier League.

The playoff final has been styled the richest match in football history this season. With the jump in TV revenue the financial reward of promotion is bugger than ever with Hull City securing the huge boost with their 1-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday.

Time has been called on Mohamed Diame's sputtering attempt to return to the squad as he underwent another procedure on his troublesome knee that will rule him out for the season.

There were definitely some highlights from Diame's time as a fit player for Hull City this season but the injured days far outweighed the fit days over the second half of the season. The gangly midfielder got some playing time over the past month or so as he tried to return for a late-season push but it wasn't to be. With relegation a real possibility, it may be that Diame has played his last match for the club.

Mohamed Diame has been playing as a substitute but his status for Week 35 against Arsenal isn't clear as his knee remains sore.

The best thing that fantasy managers can do with the information provided by Hull City about Mohamed Diame's recovery from his knee injury is assume it means that the midfielder will not start against Arsenal in Week 35. He may get a chance to contribute from the bench or he may be given a week to recover without any match action but it seems highly unlikely that Steve Bruce would go into such in important match with a starter that could potentially have to be withdrawn with a known injury issue.

Mohamed Diame suffered a bit of a setback in his recovery this week with the club reporting that his knee was sore after training.

With relegation a real possibility, there is no room in Steve Bruce's starting eleven for a player who might have to be substituted early if his sore knee doesn't react well to playing. Diame hasn't been effective off the bench since his return to the squad and Bruce would have to be extremely desperate to accelerate the player's return given the renewed concerns. Fantasy managers should avoid Diame in all formats for Week 34 for sure and likely for the balance of the season.

Mohamed Diame has returned to the Hull City squad with consecutive substitute appearances that resulted in negative fantasy scores.

Week 32 against Southampton was similar to the previous week. Mohamed Diame was involved but fantasy managers would be excused for not being thrilled about that fact. The surprise goal-scoring machine from earlier in the season has returned but his arrival in the Hull City line-up hasn't been nearly as exciting as it was when he first arrived. You can certainly write this off to knocking the rust off but given that the goal-scoring outburst looked like an outlier when it happened and there aren't many matches left, you should probably temper your expectations for Diame down the stretch if the past two weeks haven't already tempered them for you.

Mohamed Diame has finally recovered from his knee injury and will be available to Steve Bruce in Week 31.

Diame was very effective for Hull City in the time between his move from West Ham and his knee injury. Now that he is healthy again Steve Bruce will want to get him into the line-up as quickly as is practical. Fantasy managers may want to give it one more week if they don't have the option switch players after line-ups are announced.

Hull City's injured trio of Mohamed Diame, James Chester and Liam Rosenior are back in training but won't be fit enough to take part for the Week 29 trip to Leicester City.

Hull City have seen their form improve in recent weeks with goals from Nikica Jelavic and Dame N'Doye moving them out of the relegation zone. Steve Bruce will be eager to double down on those recent successes but he will have to carry on without Diame, Chester and Rosenior for at least one more week. Week 30 seems like a reasonable target for all three to be available again.

Mohamed Diame is still not back in training after suffering a setback in his recovery from an early-December knee injury.

The setback comes at a bad time with Weeks 27 and 28 coming right on top of each other. It has already been confirmed that Diame will definitely miss Week 27 and since he's yet to start training again, mid-week will almost definitely come too soon for him to play even a substitute's role in that match.

Mohamed Diame was supposed to be nearing a return but a further knee injury in training has pushed his timetable back and he will miss Week 26 vs QPR.

Hull City are getting healthier with Nikica Jelavic and Abel Hernandez both rejoining the attack in recent weeks but surprise goalscoring sensation Mo Diame won't join them for Week 26 as expected. The former West Ham man re-injured his knee in training and won't return as expected. No word yet on how far out the setback will push his return date.

Hull City are confident Senegalese midfielder Mo Diame will be available for selection when the Tigers travel to Old Trafford after a scan this week confirmed the player suffered no significant damage in a training ground injury last weekend.

Diame returned from international duty unscathed and his absence against Tottenham was thought to be due to fatigue following his late return after Africa Cup of Nations duty but Steve Bruce confirmed post-match that the midfielder had a problem with the tendon in his knee which required a scan. The news of his potential return is a major boost for Hull who have only won once since their opening day victory over Queens Park Rangers and hover precariously above the relegation zone. Hatem Ben Arfa will once again be pushing for a start while Bruce has a decision to make as Gaston Ramirez is suspended – Stephen Quinn will battle it out with Abel Hernandez for a place in the eleven.

Mohamed Diame continued his red hot form with his fourth goal in five Hull City matches but Hull City gave away another late lead to settle for a draw.

Two of the major story lines of the season thus far for Hull City have been the performance of their new signings and their propensity to give away leads late. Late August arrivals Mohamed Diame and Abel Hernandez both scored to continue the positive trend but Hull City saw Danny Welbeck peg back their lead in stoppage time with a nicely taken left footed goal from an Alexis Sanchez run. Hull City lost Nikica Jelavic to an injury in warm-ups and Steve Harper to a shoulder ligament issue in the 43rd minute.

Mohamed Diame played on Wednesday and then traveled back to England from Tunisia leaving his availability for Saturday at the Emirates up in the air.

Diame owners in salary cap leagues where there is unlikely to be an update on Diame's starting status before transfer deadlines should play it safe and sit/sell the midfielder despite his recent goal streak. Owners who have him in a unique ownership format or who are allowed greater flexibility to change line-ups closer to kickoff should have a substitute available in the event that Diame is rested.

The Mohamed Diame revolution at Hull City continues as the midfielder scored his third goal in four matches to power Steve Bruce's men to a 2-0 over Crystal Palace.

Mohamed Diame has never scored more than 4 goals in a Premier League season but he is now on the verge of matching that total after only four matches at Hull City. Fellow reclamation project Nikica Jelavic was also on target again as Hull City cruised past Crystal Palace at the KC Stadium. Diame's second half goal came on a header after the ball had deflected out to the wing. Jelavic sealed the win late breaking the offside trap and beating both the last defender and Julian Speroni with a classy finish.
