West Ham boss Bilic not writing off Sakho after deadline antics

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic says he hasn't written off Diafra Sakho.

On deadline day, Sakho flew himself to French club Rennes and underwent a medical, before a trip to Chelmsford racecourse where his agent's horse won the 3.20 race.

Bilic said: "Yeah, Diafra wanted to go. But also, that issue is not quite black and white. Did he have permission, permission on paper or just a form or an SMS? I don't know.

"He looks good in training. Hopefully he is going to stay like that for a long time. Because he will know that until January he is a West Ham player.

"That's the way he's going to get a new contract, or play again for Senegal, or get a move: if he plays good."
