The 24-year-old has been targeted by Hammers boss Sam Allardyce as a replacement for Andy Carroll, whose injury woes returned this summer, an ankle problem ruling him out for at least the first two months of the Premier League season.

Sakho scored 20 times in the French Second Division last season and could cost West Ham £4.5m - they were also linked with recent Newcastle signing Facundo Ferreyra and Stoke's Peter Crouch.

The deal appeared to be dead in the water earlier this week when Metz threatened West Ham with legal action after he missed their Ligue 1 opener against Lille for talks about a move.

They also claimed the Hammers wanted to change their agreed upon deal from a permanent one to a season-long loan in the closing stages of their talks over Sakho.

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
