Diafra Sakho is very much in limbo at the moment. He is currently in Rennes awaiting a decision on his future.
He was the subject of a £9m bid by Rennes, meeting West Ham’s valuation of the player. He then arrived in France on Monday and underwent a medical at the Ligue 1 club, fully expecting the deal to go ahead.
Then later in the afternoon, West Ham Chairman David Gold tweeted that Sakho is a very important player to the club and must remain. Then this morning, Sky Sports placed all of the blame on the player by stating that he was pushing an unauthorised deal through.
Sakho is of course in Rennes, and so he is not attending training with West Ham today.
Mixed messages coming out of the London club…
