West Brom call off £15m Sakho move

Breaking news

West Brom’s £15m move for West Ham striker Diafra Sakho is off after the player took a medical at The Hawthorns.

The 26-year-old’s fee would have been a club record for the Baggies.

Sakho has spent the last two seasons with the Hammers, scoring 15 league goals in 44 appearances, although he has suffered several injury problems.

His likely arrival had added to speculation that the club would sell striker Saido Berahino, 23, who is a target for Crystal Palace and Stoke.

The Potters have offered £17m with £3m in add-ons for the England Under-21 international – a fee which is close to West Brom’s valuation of the striker.
