West Brom have agreed a fee with West Ham for striker Diafra Sakho, according to a report.
Sky Sports claim that the two clubs have reached an agreement that will see Sakho leave the Olympic Stadium. The agreed fee is said to be in the region of £16million.
Sakho handed in a transfer request in July after Sunderland had an £11million bid rejected by the Hammers.
Sevilla and Hamburg are also understood to have previously enquired about the availability of the forward, who has two years remaining on his current contract.
The Senegalese star looked set to leave Upton Park after he reportedly refused to go on the club’s pre-season tour of Austria.
Current Sunderland manager Sam Allardyce brought the forward to the English game two years ago while in charge at West Ham, costing £3.5million to secure his services from FC Metz.
The Senegalese striker impressed during his stay in France, winning the Ligue 2 division in 2013/14 and being named the Player of the Year in that season with 20 goals.
Since his move to England the 26-year-old has made 44 appearances and scored a respectable 15 goals.
In other West Ham transfer news, the Hammers want to do a loan deal for Manchester United’s defender Cameron Borthwick-Jackson, according to a report.
