West Ham attacker reportedly pushing for a move to Newcastle United

According to reports, West Ham striker Diafra Sakho is pushing for a move to either Newcastle, Swansea City or West Bromwich Albion.

After not featuring regularly for the Hammers during the first half of the season, Sakho is looking to leave the club as he looks to keep sharp ahead of the 2018 world cup where he will likely be part of the Senegal squad.

He tried to force through a move to French club Rennes during the summer but this was denied by the Hammers.

Newcastle United have been linked with a move for the striker throughout this month.

Bleacher Report correspondent Dean Jones posted on Twitter last week that the Magpies were set to hijack Crystal Palace’s move for the striker.

It has also been reported that Magpies manager Rafa Benitez enquired about taking Sakho on loan for the rest of the season but that this offer was denied by West Ham.
