Sakho’s absence from squad sends out big message

diafrasakho221217bAccording to Ken Dyer in the London Evening Standard Diafra Sakho will be left out of the squad today to face West Brom sending out a huge message to clubs in need of firepower that the Senegalese striker is up for sale.

With a string of injuries and just six months plus an option remaining on his contract, the Hammers are said not to be willing to take a chance on the 28-year-old who wants out of the club.

Swansea has been linked with the striker but his likely destination remains France with a host clubs showing interest, however, club insider insist they have received no formal bids so far.

Last week his representative, Thierno Seydi, claimed a series of clubs have shown interest in the striker.

He said: “Diafra wants to play and to start matches, but West Ham are not offering him the opportunitiesSo he has declared his intention to look elsewhere. He is not short of offers.He has stated his desire to leave since the last transfer window. His club hasn’t been happy about this. Diafra will never pick a fight to achieve his aim. He will leave, but he’ll do it in the proper manner.

He knows West Ham want to make money from his transfer.He has remained professional despite the numerous offers he’s received.He wants to play for a club that puts more faith in him.”

West Ham wants £15m for the striker they bought for £3.5m from Metz with the fee later rising to £4.5m with add-ons. They are thought to accept an offer as low as £12m if there is little demand but that would still leave them £7.5m in profit for the wantaway forward.

  1. Let’s sell him to Swansea and make 7.5 mill and flirt with relegation 😂😂 are we that desperate for money that we would actually sell our best striker , there needs to be a stewards if this happens IMO ! He must be sold abroad , if not he will keep Swansea on our heel’s and that would be brain dead ? Absolutely nothing computes anymore , amateurs ! Fekin amateurs !! The lad would have stayed if he was played ! So it looks like the misfiring elbonic missile is preferred at 90,000 a week with one shot (poke ) at goal to his name to save our season with the pea on the bench and ayew the prefred striker ish waste of space nothing to offer the team but goal hang !! I wonder who is coming in to replace him ? 4 mill mcginn ? That leaves 3.5 mill profit 😂 what fantastic business ! Lofl 😟

    • How is Sakho our best striker ?? ., Laz .
      We don’t have a best striker . It’s been years since we had a “ best striker “ . , a lot of years.
      Loyal players deserve game time but , in the case of want away Sakho !!!
      At the moment Arnautovic is by miles a better choice . And he’s not exactly cutting down trees either .
      Carroll should start tonight . West Brom are ripe for picking and a brutal Carroll would be too much for them to handle . Route one footy will win it . No time for pretty stuff because tonight is probably our most important game for two years . I know you and others are against him but tonight’s game is made for him .

      • Because he is Kevin ! Carroll is a fekin disgrace and to play the poppodom with one strike on goal all season is a fekin joke , sakho is our best centre forward by a million miles whether you like him or not ! Arnie is not a centre forward he’s a winger , like salah , and hazard but not as good ! Whether he stays or goes means jack💩 because he isn’t playing anyway , but Carroll is a different ball game ! He’s the biggest disappointment this club has ever had , worthy of 5 sakho,s ffs ! He’s had more games than sakho but sakho has outscored him anyway ! Wakey wakey keV ! Leave that absinth alone mate and west brom will welcome hoof ball all fekin night they are the artist,s of the prem at defending lofl ! 😉 apply new year anyway you old fart 😂

  2. I disagree Laz. Why under 2 different managers has he not been given the opportunity? He expects it to be handed to him on a plate and as good as he is Im sorry but he has in no way shape or form earned the right to EXPECT to start every game. He’s a petulant child spoilt little brat who by the looks of the body language and interaction with the team is becoming the dressing rooms new Payet. Ive supported him and always hoped he would get a chance and prove himself but he must be doing so so much behind the scenes to make managers not want to utilize his obvious ability.

  3. Sorry misread your post Laz. In fact I agree with everything you said haha.

  4. I’d be interested in letting him and Cresswell move to Goodison in return for Morgan Schneiderlan…….??
    BFSam gets 2 of his signings (Sort of) and offlaods an underacheiving big earner….

  5. Not a chance. Schneiderlin is a waste of oxygen & Cressy is good for a back up LB. Mirallas is probably the only midfielder of any worth from Everton (who Sam would be willing to let go) but then even he is ageing so lets move on from Everton players!!

  6. We def should not Sell Sahko to Swansea or any other team around us in table bc like him or not he is a solid CF well rounded player. Be much better of selling him to France then giving a PL proven striker to relegation rivals.
