Alan Irvine: 'Diafra Sakho has future at West Ham United'

Irvine: 'Sakho has West Ham future'

West Ham United coach Alan Irvine says that forward Diafra Sakho still has a future at the London Stadium.

West Ham United coach Alan Irvine has claimed that Diafra Sakho is currently not in the first-team squad due to injury, not because of a possible transfer.

Despite expressing a desire to leave West Ham last year, Sakho remained at the London Stadium but the 28-year-old continues to be linked with a switch to another club.

However, Irvine has insisted that the striker's recent absence is down to injury, rather than manager David Moyes protecting him ahead of a departure elsewhere.

Irvine told reporters: "Absolutely. He is injured at the moment, has been since the window opened so he's not been on the training ground at all, I've seen very little of him to be honest.

"He is not available for selection, it's as simple as that."

Crystal Palace, Huddersfield Town and Swansea City have all been linked with a move for Sakho, who has not started a Premier League match this season.
