With rumours that the Eagles have agreed on a deal for the Senegal forward, their boss remains coy on such discussion

Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson is keeping ‘quiet’ on talks regarding a move for Diafra Sakho from West Ham United.

The striker whose summer move to Ligue 1 side Rennes infamously collapsed on deadline day is understood to have grown frustrated at the Hammers. The 28-year-old has scored four goals in 17 appearances, starting just two of them, this season.

"We are doing it as best we can and as professionally as we can.

"It is better to keep quiet on the subject,” he concluded.
