C'est le fin. Finally, after all the disappointment and frustration, the sad saga of Modi Maiga's West ham sentence has ended. Two years of abject misery for the Mali 'striker' has ended with the news that he has signed for Al Nassr in the Saudi league and will be departing Upton Park immediately. A sense of relief has descended upon all concerned. Happily, he got to sign off with a rare goal at the weekend. We wish him all the very best.
Given that Carroll, Valencia, Zarate and now Sakho are all injured or rumoured to be doubtful for action in the coming weeks this signals that the long awaited reinforcements up front are imminent. Zaza?...Austin!?!
Undoubtedly more news will follow in the next day or two.
Au revoir Modi. Nobody can say we didn't give it a fair chance but it wasn't to be. We wont forget your winner against Spurs.
