Diafra Sakho has arrived in France for a medical as he edges closer to an exit from West Ham.
The striker arrived at West Ham back in 2014 following an undisclosed transfer from French club Metz, scoring 12 goals in just 26 appearances in his debut campaign. However, since then, he has scored just eight more goals in 31 appearances over two injury hit years.
The striker has now been pictured at Rennes-Saint-Jaques-de-la-Lande airport after arriving at 10am CET from a flight from London as he prepares to take a medical with Ligue 1 club Stade Rennais.

A deal to return to France is believed to be close, although reports suggest that the club’s are yet to finalise the terms of the transfer, with West Ham looking to achieve a fee of £10m.
Told Rennes have bid for Sakho but it has been rejected for being too low. If they up it close to £10m, something could happen. Up to them.
