How to announce diversion?

Hey,
experienced this multiple times already on live:
Strong crosswind, bad sight on the runway, two go arounds already and I want to look for an airport with better conditions.
Now, am I able to announce a diversion to a different airport and if so, how?
So far I always requested tower for departure to the N/E/S/W. Is that ok?
Thanks for your help!

Just request departure N,S,E,W and divert your flight plan if your alternate isn’t already included.

Always wanted to know how to do this!

Do they want to land safely at an airport at most 50nm away or do they want to fly several go arounds in bad conditions and a nose-breaking touchdown?
