With the closure of the transfer window virtually upon us, the club has made it clear there is no price tag on the player’s head and that they won’t consider any offers.
The club has regularly denied that a firm offer has been received for either Sakho or Valencia but they have made it crystal clear this morning that any club considering a Sakho move can forget it.
ClaretandHugh was told: “There have been no offers or inquiries, only rumours, but it’s as well to get things straight. There is zero chance that we will sell Diafra.”
The player is currently caught up in a club v country row but the Irons remain confident he will be available for next Sunday’s clash against Manchester United.
“We understand five days has to elapse from Senegal’s elimination before we can play him – we have done nothing wrong and are playing it by the book with Fifa.”
