France Football is reporting that West Ham United forward Diafra Sakho will be leaving London in the coming days.
The Senegalese was first linked with a move to Bordeaux, but latest reports suggest he is heading to Rennes instead.
According to France Football, the two clubs have reached an agreement over an outright transfer, allowing Sakho to sign a deal until June 2020 with les Bretons.
The 28-year-old will be a high-profile signing for Rennes who harbour Europa League ambitions, yet largely struggle up front.
Having bagged mere 28 goals in 23 Ligue 1 fixtures so far, les Bretons will be hoping Sakho can make an instant impact.
Since joining West Ham from Metz in August 2014, the forward has scored 18 goals in 62 Premier League outings.
