Sakho deal “not necessarily dead”


sakhoWest Ham may return to Metz in a surprise move  to take Diafra Sakho to Upton Park.

Despite negotiations apparently breaking down and the French club seemingly ready to report the Irons to Uefa, we understand talks could continue.

But a club insider told ClaretandHugh: “That particular move may not necessarily be dead – watch this space.”

We understand that cash for fees is very short which is why a loan, with a view to a permanent deal once the club have had the chance to take a look at Sakho,  was put on the table.

The owners would dig deep were Connor Wickham become available but may be unready to spend £3m-£4 million on a French Ligue 2 player at this stage.
