Sakho: The financials …as Noble waits

NobleMark Noble is the next Hammer in line to be offered a hefty new contract.

Co chairman and chief shareholder David Sullivan tonight kept his pledge to reward the extraordinary Diafra Sakho with a vastly improved deal after his early season goal-scoring feats.

ClaretandHugh reported on October 28 that Sullivan was ready to up his contract as a reward for excellence.

The player accepted terms of around £15,000 a week, a percentage of which was based on first team appearances when joining the club.

We said: “Such has been his utterly outstanding start to the season the club are set to review the terms of his contract.

sakho-diafra_3214372A well placed insider was reported as saying: “David is keen to reward him. He gets a review after 25 starts in his contract. If he keeps scoring, however, David will bring that forward as a reward for excellence.”

And that is precisely what has happened with the player now believed to be on £25k a week with appearance bonuses.

Noble is now set to receive a new offer although we are told that will be closer to the summer with Sullivan taking up the two year option the club hold on him whilst offering another three years on improved money.
