West Ham United forward Modibo Maiga has joined Al-Nasr, the Saudi Arabian champion said Monday.

"#ALNASSR signed a 2 year contract with former @whufc-official's forward, Modibo Maiga. Congratulations," Al-Nasr said on Twitter.

The Premier League club has not confirmed the deal. The Mali international joined West Ham for 4.7 million pounds ($7.22 million) from Sochaux three years ago but never established himself in the first team and has had loan spells at Queens Park Rangers and Metz.

The 27-year-old scored the Hammers' third goal in their 4-3 home defeat by Bournemouth last week after coming off the bench, his seventh goal in 45 appearances.
