Sakho has to wait


SakhoWest Ham fans will have to wait for their first look at new signing Diafra Sakho.

The £2.5 million Senegalese front man signed too late to get international clearance for tomorrow (Sat) clash against Spurs.

And he is more likely to make his first appearance in the claret and blue against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

However, it’s possible that Enner Valencia may be available for the game in south east London which would see him having to sit it out.

A Hammers source explained to ClaretandHugh:” Diafra’s international clearancewill take two or three days to come through.”

However, as reported earlier 17 year old Reece Burke looks likely to be included in the Irons squad.

    Going by today’s efforts he may have longer to wait than that as Sam doesn’t do forwards it seems ( even when the opposition are down to 10 men
    What poor planning anyway that doesn’t get him eligible for today. If they hadn’t messed about earlier in week he could have been in there (subject to BFS selection that is !!)
