Modibo Maiga has joined Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr from West Ham for an undisclosed fee, the club have announced.

Maiga flew to the Middle East on Tuesday, though it was widely reported that he did not have West Ham’s permission to do so.

Nevertheless, the Hammers have now confirmed the Malian striker’s departure, thus bringing an end to his unspectacular three-year spell in east London.

Maiga scored seven goals in 45 appearances for the club following his move from Sochaux and joins the likes of Stewart Downing, Kevin Nolan and Carlton Cole in departing the club this summer.

Goal understands that the Hammers have identified a number of striking targets as they look to bolster their forward line ahead of the transfer deadline, with Emmanuel Adebayor, Simone Zaza and Burak Yilmaz all seen as potential acquisitions.
