David Moyes has admitted he was aware that Diafra Sakho would be sold during the January transfer window.

The 28-year-old striker completed a 4.5million move to Ligue 1 side Stade Reannais at the weekend after months of speculation regarding his future.

And according to manager Moyes, he was fully aware that he would be losing the services of West Ham's most prolific goalscorer when he arrived at the club back in November.

Speaking ahead of tomorrow night's hugely important Premier League clash with Crystal Palace, Moyes said: "When I joined, I was told Diafra would be leaving in January. As far as I know it's all done now.

And with regards to adding to his threadbear squad ahead of Wednesday night's transfer deadline, he added: "I'm not going to bring in players who won't make a difference to the team. It's a waste of money and a waste of time."
