Irons make good on Sakho contract promise

SaksullyWest Ham have made good on their promise to Diafra Sakho that he would be rewarded for excellence.

ClaretandHugh has learned this evening that although it was kept entirely quiet at the time, the Senegal striker was  given a substantial rise on his original pay deal back in the winter.

As the top goalscorer announced earlier today he that he would be ready for the start of the season we were told “Diafra is very very happy and working hard.

“It was kept very quiet at the time but the club gave him a substantial pay award on his basic contract around Christmas after David Sullivan had promised him a reward for excellence earlier in the season.”

Sakho, like the rest of the squad, will have their contracts reviewed again in December.
