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.

put Ince in my fantasy football team, so it's no surprise at all really. I do that to players. Also responsible for De Jong and Upson being injured. Think I'll transfer in Di Maria just to ruin United....
