WEST HAM BOOST: Sakho OUT of Senegal AFCON squad

West Ham United striker Diafra Sakho is out of Senegal's Africa Cup of Nations squad.

Sakho has been ruled out of Senegal's final squad due to a back injury.

"Sakho is not on the list of 23 players, his back problem is even preventing him from moving," Senegal coach Alain Giresse announced.

The 25-year-old had been due to arrive in Dakar on Tuesday for Senegal medics to assess his recurring back problem.

He will be replaced by Pape Moussa Konate, 21, who plays for Sion in Switzerland.
