Sakho linked with Fenerbahce interest

diafra-sakho-west-hamTurkish club Fenerbahce have been linked to possible interest to West Ham striker Diafra Sakho.  A report in Fantik claims the Turkish outfit has offered his services by representatives. 

West Ham signed Sakho from French side FC Metz in August 2014 for £3.5m rising to £4.25m with add-ons. His basic wages at the time were just £7,500 per week plus £7,500 per appearance on a four-year contract. His deal specified that his deal would be reviewed after 25 appearances. The transfer fee could reach £7m if Sakho ever achieves 140 appearances in a West Ham shirt which appears extremely unlikely.

In December 2014 Sakho received a pay rise to £27,000 per week almost doubling his wages as a reward to his great start in the Premier League. His pay was reviewed after just 9 appearances instead of 25 games specified in his contract.

His contract with West Ham finishes next summer at which point he can walk away from the club on a free transfer.  His low wages of £27,000 per week make him an attractive target for clubs outside the Premier League prepared to take a gamble on his injury record.

  3. The Turkish outfit has offered his services to who? Fantik? sorry this doesn’t make any sense.

    I was actually looking forward to seeing him play…. I trust this isn’t true as I’ve not heard of Fantik I can only assume they’ve made some fake news.

  5. Couldn’t they throw in Andy Carroll for free as part of the deal!
