Hammers star wants to leave in January

West Ham United forward Diafra Sakho is reportedly ready to leave the club due to his lack of game time.

The Senegalese international was a first-team regular during his first couple of seasons at the club following his transfer from Metz, but he has found his time on the pitch limited by former manager Slaven Bilic as well as his replacement and current boss David Moyes.

In fact, Sakho played just four times for the Hammers last season, and it was apparent in the summer that he wanted to leave the club; he didn’t get his move, but promised to continue to fight for his place in the team.

However, according to The Sun, the 28-year-old is concerned that he will lose his place in the Senegal World Cup squad if he continues to not play, so wants a swift exit from the London Stadium in January.

The player’s agent Thierno Seydi has insisted that there are a series of clubs have shown interest in the striker.

“Diafra wants to play and to start matches, but West Ham are not offering him the opportunities,” his agent said.

“So 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.”
