West Ham have confirmed that striker Alessandro Diamanti has completed his return to Italy.
Sky Sports revealed on Monday that Brescia had agreed a fee with the Hammers and were set to negotiate personal terms with Diamanti.
And West Ham announced on their official website on Tuesday that the 27-year-old has sealed a €2.2million (£1.8m) switch to the newly-promoted Serie A side.
Diamanti was signed by Gianfranco Zola last summer from Livorno for an undisclosed fee.
He signed a five-year deal at Upton Park and went on to help the Hammers secure Premier League survival, scoring eight goals in 29 appearances in all competitions.
Diamanti was one of the side's best players last season but faced stiff competition this term with new manager Avram Grant having brought in attacking talents such as Pablo Barrera, Thomas Hitzlsperger and Frederic Piquionne.
If Brescia stay up in Serie A this season then West Ham will receive another payment of €300,000 (£250,000).
"All at West Ham United would like to wish Alessandro well for the future and thank him for his efforts in his year at the club," finished the statement on the Hammers' official website.
