West Brom and West Ham agree fee for striker

West Bromwich Albion have agreed a £16million fee with West Ham United over striker Diafra Sakho.

The Senegalese striker joined the Hammers in 2014, enjoying a fantastic debut season at Upton Park where he scored 12 goals in 26 games.

However, during his second season at the club he found opportunities more limited, making just 23 appearances and finding the net in just seven occasions.

The 26-year old handed in a transfer request earlier this month amid interest from Sunderland, who were managed by former Hammers boss Sam Allardyce at the time. However the club have now agreed a £16million fee with West Bromwich Albion who could sign Sakho as a replacement for their own want away striker, Saido Berahino.

Berahino has been strongly linked with a move to Stoke City this summer.

A deal to take Sakho to the Hawthorns could be completed during the next week.
