Rennes 'satisfied' with Sakho deal

Diafra Sakho is now officially a Stade Rennais player after completing his move to the Ligue 1 club.

As we revealed here on KUMB last night, Sakho's move to the French club was tied up over the weeken, with West Ham receiving in the region of 4.5million plus add-ons for the striker.

And despite being ruled out of West Ham's FA Cup defeat at Wigan Athletic last weekend, Sakho looked raring to go as he was pictured in his new club colours for the first time.

"Diafra had a lot of offers from France, the Premier League and Europe so we are happy to have him on our side," said Rennes Chairman, Olivier Letang.

"Leaving a Premier League club is not easy. Finally, Diafra is at Rennais to our great satisfaction. I want to thank West Ham, without whom we would not be here today.

"From the beginning, we talked with Diafra and his representatives because he had the profile we were looking for. We are convinced that with him, the team will be stronger.

"Beyond the footballer, he is a man who has a real personality and a desire for success."
