Rennes have completed the signing of Diafra Sakho from West Ham.

The striker, 28, has left for an undisclosed fee after three-and-a-half seasons in east London, where he scored 24 goals in 71 first-team appearances following his move from Metz.

And Joe Hart and Andre Ayew could also be on their way out of West Ham, according to reports.

The Times say England goalkeeper Hart is keen to end his loan deal and move elsewhere in order to avoid missing out on this summer’s World Cup.

West Ham’s elimination from the FA Cup potentially means Hart’s first-team chances at the club will be limited, prompting speculation about his future.

The Sun say Swansea City are hoping to seal an £18m deal to re-sign Ayew from the Hammers.

A bid of £15m for the former Swans striker is said to have been rejected but discussions between the two clubs have apparently continued.

The Sun also say West Ham have had a £15m bid for Tom Cairney rejected and have told Fulham they are willing to pay £20m for the Scotland international.

Fulham reportedly want £30m for Cairney, with QPR’s Luke Freeman – apparently rated at £4m by the R’s – having been touted as a possible replacement for him at Craven Cottage.
