West Ham spurn Sakho approach

West Ham are understood to have rejected a swap deal from West Bromwhich Albion involving strikers Diafra Sakho and Saido Berahino.

The Hammers, who are currently trying to offload the troubled Senegal international have been approached by Albion but failed to reach an agreement, according to a KUMB source.

A potential deal is said to have fallen through after the two clubs failed to reach an agreement with regards to the players' values.

Berahino, who was the subject of a 23million offer from Tottenham last year is out of contract at the end of the 2016/17 season. As a result, West Ham were unwilling to pay anywhere close to his full market value.

Meanwhile Albion were unwilling to meet West Ham's 15million valuation of Sakho, who is contracted to West Ham until the summer of 2018 but likely to leave the club this summer.

Whilst the Hammers remain interested in signing Berahino - albeit as a reserve option should they fail to push through any of their main targets (Lacazette etc) - Crystal Palace, Stoke City and Watford have also contacted Albion with view to signing the former England Under 21 international.

Sakho, who moved to West Ham two years ago in a 4million switch from Metz was the subject of a recent bid from Sunderland, who are understood to have offered just 8million up front.
