WEST Ham United star Diafra Sakho has been arrested on suspicion of making threats to kill and witness intimidation, according to reports.
The striker, 25, was arrested on Sunday night before being bailed.
The incident came after the £15 million rated striker had previously been questioned over an alleged assault earlier this month.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: “On Sunday August 23, officers from Havering arrested a man on suspicion of threats to kill and witness intimidation.
“A 25-year-old man was arrested at an address in Emerson Park, Hornchurch. He was taken to an east London police station and bailed pending police enquiries to a date in early October.”
A spokesman for the player told The Sun: “Diafra Sakho has not been charged with any offence. He vigorously denies the allegations that have been made against him, and has given police a complete explanation of events.
“He will not be making any further comment.”
Police have not revealed the identity of the alleged victim, but it is believed that it could be the Senagalese international’s girlfriend Mya Hassan.
It has recently been rumoured that the 29-year-old model is pregnant with the footballer’s second child.
Sakho joined West Ham in August last year and has scored 12 goals for the team in 26 Premier League appearances.
