Sakho hands in transfer request

West Ham United striker Diafra Sakho has handed in a transfer request, according to the Mail Online.

The Senegal international is keen to find regular first team football and isn’t convinced that will happen should he stay with the Hammers, who are preparing for their first season in their new stadium.

Since signing from FC Metz in the summer of 2014, the twenty-six year old has racked up forty-nine club appearances in all competitions, scoring nineteen goals.

However, he started less than half of the East London side’s league games last season and managed just five goals in the English top flight as Slaven Bilic’s side achieved a seventh place finish.

Sunderland made an £11m bid for Sakho last month though it is unclear whether the North East side are willing to reignite their interest, with manager Sam Allardyce also considering a move for Lorient’s Benjamin Moukandjo.
