Sakho to undergo surgery


West Ham striker Diafra Sakho is to undergo surgery on the thigh injury that will see him sidelined for up to three months, the Premier League club has confirmed.

Sakho was injured during last weekend's 1-1 draw with West Brom and it was feared that he could miss the remainder of the season.

Manager Slaven Bilic told reporters on Thursday that the striker would miss up to eight weeks but having met with specialists, the Senegal international has been advised to have surgery, which will rule him out for three months.

The operation is scheduled for Saturday with Sakho unlikely to be available again until March.

"West Ham United striker Diafra Sakho consulted a specialist on Thursday afternoon to further assess his thigh injury," a statement on the club's website read.

"The Senegal international will undergo surgery on Saturday.

"The expected rehabilitation time from the operation is expected to be approximately three months."
