Sky Sports report sheds light on Diafra Sakho contract situation

There have been reports suggesting the West Ham forward is unsettled at Upton Park.

Diafra Sakho is not unsettled at West Ham United, according to Sky Sports.

Indeed, recent reports have suggested Sakho is unhappy at Upton Park, following a recent message posted on social media.

But it is said the forward's frustrations stem from his personal life - not at work with West Ham.

Sky Sports report that the Hammers forward is also perfectly happy with his contract in east London.

It was suggested Sakho has been unsettled by the club's pursuit of a new striker - but he is happy with his current deal.

Sakho is a vital component of the West Ham first team when he is on song.

Andy Carroll netted a famous hat-trick on Saturday afternoon but, when Slaven Bilic wants his side to play along the ground more, Sakho is far more important than the target man.

If there are any problems between Bilic and the striker, it's simply the result of having such a strong squad.

But the Croat has been heavily praised for his man management this season and a falling out would seem out of character.
