The £6 million striker has no role to play at Upton Park and the club is working hard to sort something out.
However, thus far – after an ineffective loan spell at Queens Park Rangers last term – there is little interest in the striker.
West Ham believe, however, there may be a French clubkeen to get involved and are ready to set-up a wage sharing deal.
The club’s frustration is such that are allegedly ready to allow the 26 year old to leave on a free.
A source told ClaretandHugh exclusively: “It’s one we are working on. It hasn’t worked out at all here for Modibo and a move would now be in his best interests.”
“If we needed to do a wage sharing deal then we would certainly consider that at this stage of the proceedings.”
