Sakho out for four weeks
You wait all season for a West Ham striker to score a goal and then he's out for four weeks with a hamstring injury. Really bad news to hear of Diafra Sakho's injury, though not uncommon with players who have been out for a long time. Meanwhile the Sun reports that the club are speaking to Simone Zaza's advisers about removing the compulsory buy-out clause in his contract. It would certainly take the pressure off both player and club if it could be removed — and why was it included in the first place? Seems like we'll be needing a combination of Ayew, Zaza and Fletcher over December and we have to hope Simone becomes a different player should he eventually score and regain his confidence.
