Hammers on Senegal striker link

Moussa+Konate+Bologna+FC+v+Genoa+CFC+h92PQTzYGMplWest Ham today moved quickly to dispel speculation surrounding their possible interest in Senegal striker Moussa Konate.

The story emerged this morning, probably as a result of the growing Senegal connection, but top insiders were quick to knock the rumour down

There has been no formal comment on the story until now but when ClaretandHugh approached it’s best source inside the club we were told: “There’s nothing in that whatsoever – someone has a rich imagination.”

Newcastle and Aston Villa are reported as being interested but we are entirely convinced Upton Park is not a destination for the guy who replaced Diafra Sakho at January’s Africa Cup of Nations.

  1. Allardyce will always be linked with players from senegal thanks to his relationship to el hadj diouf who played for him at bolton and blackburn. Diouf is a senegal legend. Hero to players from senegal like sakho and kouyate. Kouyate recently said that diouf was an inspiration who made players from senegal dare to dream and want to be successful. He also said he could have gone to play in spain but chose west ham because of sam allardyce.

    • Thanks for that beautifully written article but wasnt Sakho not wanted by Allardyce & i wonder why we are not linked with Nigerians all the time,after all Jay Jay was a legend & loved by his nation,also one of Allardyces boys.I dare to dream to,dare to dream that Allardyce isnt in the dugout next year.You do a great job of turning Allardyce into Superman with every comment you leave.Do you have his posters all over your bedroom walls.

  2. I would think it’s Sullivan’s ‘advisors’ who are instigating any possible moves, BFS would be getting more and more marginalised as the possibility of a Manager change gets more likely.

  3. @chicken runner. Are u sure u r commenting on the right story cos none of that makes the remotest sense. Are u suggesting anyone here is an allardyce fan lol

    • Haha,no Hugh,i was thanking lifeissobeautiful for his beautifully written comment that was more like an article selling Sams virtues 😀

  4. We will be linked with hundreds of strikers over this period until the transfer window shuts again.Its that time of the year for speculation & stories with little substance.I will miss not having any senegalese coming to us anymore though.Clearly according to lifeissobeautifulmarriedtosam he has first refusal on every senegal player on the planet.We must thank him for bring the senagalese hotshot Sakho to us.Oh no wait a minute,he was a senagalese player Sullivan went & got who BFS didnt even rate 😉
