Jack Sullivan, the son of West Ham co-chairman David Sullivan has revealed that striker Diafa Sakho is not leaving despite reports that he has passed a medical with French club Rennes.
Sky Sports’ transfer expert Kaveh Solhekol made the claim via his personal Twitter account on Wednesday that Sakho had passed his medical with Rennes with a £9million fee agreed for the 27-year-old Senegal international.

However, Sullivan went against such claims via his own personal Twitter account, confidently stating that he’s heard he is not leaving while also pointing out that he has sources at the club.

Sakho has been a part of the West Ham side for three years after completing a move from French club Metz in the summer of 2014 for an undisclosed fee.
He has since returned a fine 21 goals in 58 matches in total for the Hammers, but an injury plagued last year saw him play just four times in the last campaign.
However, this season he has already managed to compete in four matches in all competitions for the east Londoners, scoring once in the EFL Cup win against Cheltenham and with a year left on his contract he will be looking for a bigger contribution if he does stay at West Ham.
