West Ham chief Gold insists AWOL Sakho not for sale

West Ham chief David Gold insists Diafra Sakho is staying.

Sakho has been linked with Rennes and Crystal Palace over the last few hours, with a photograph on social media seemingly showing the striker arriving at a French airport.

However, it appears that the Senegal international had travelled without the permission of West Ham. He now faces an awkward reunion with his team-mates at the London Stadium with the club hierarchy insistent he will not be sold before the window closes tomorrow.

Gold wrote on Twitter: “Diafra Sakho is not for sale in this transfer window he is an integral part of our first team squad and will play a part in our recovery."
