Want away star to be offered new deal in attempt to keep him in East London


Diafra Sakho may be offered a new improved contract at West Ham in an attempt to keep him at the London Stadium, only months after trying to a force a move away from the club.

Sakho was involved in a deadline day fiasco at the end of August in which the Senegal star travelled, with West Ham’s permission, to have a medical and agree personal terms with Ligue 1 side Rennes, only for his move to be denied by his current club at the last moment.

After missing the start of the season with injury, Sakho has since shown good form after earning back a place in Slaven Bilic’s squad, and has scored three goals in just over 200 minutes of football for the Hammers, including scoring a last gasp winner against Swansea last weekend.

The Daily Mail now report the striker’s good form may be rewarded with a new contract that could tie his long term future down to the East London club.

Co-owner David Sullivan still sees Sakho as a ‘integral’ part of the club going forward into the future, despite the Hammers signing former Manchester United Javier Hernandez during the summer.
