Premier League striker arrested on allegations of threatening to kill

Tom Victor

Things have not been going well for West Ham in the striker department this season.

Enner Valencia and Andy Carroll are both recovering from serious injuries, Modibo Maiga has been sold and other targets have turned the club down to sign on elsewhere.

And they were dealt a further blow with the news that last season’s top scorer, Diafra Sakho, has been arrested on suspicion of witness intimidation and threats to kill, less than a month after a separate arrest following allegations of assault.

A spokesman for the player told the Sun: “Diafra Sakho has not been charged with any offence.

“He vigorously denies the allegations that have been made against him, and has given the police a complete explanation of events.”
