Report: Sakho's move to Palace in doubt

A report claims that West Ham United striker Diafra Sakho's proposed move to Premier League rivals Crystal Palace is now in doubt.

Diafra Sakho is reportedly expected to remain a West Ham United player this month as his proposed switch to Crystal Palace is on the brink of collapsing.

The Senegal international, who was also left frustrated in his pursuit to join Rennes in the summer, was one of a number of striking targets on Eagles boss Roy Hodgson's radar.

Despite talks supposedly being at an advanced stage on Wednesday, however, Sky Sports News claims that the transfer between Premier League rivals is now in major doubt.

Speaking about the possibility of bringing in the 28-year-old earlier today, Hodgson told reporters: "I'm not prepared to talk about any players. There is bound to be conflicting reports.

"It would be very foolish of me to start commenting on anybody at the moment. We are doing it as best we can and as professionally as we can. It is better to keep quiet on the subject."

Palace and West Ham were said to have agreed on a fee of between £10m and £12m for Sakho when opening talks earlier this week.
