Diop responds to United rumours

English Premier League

West Ham United defender Issa Diop has responded to the surprising links with Premier League giants Chelsea and Manchester United.

The French defender has reportedly caught the eye from some of England's elite after impressive debut season following his move from Toulouse in 2019.

Diop ended up remaining with the Hammers this season but the rumours have flared up once again, but the defender insists he is just focusing on helping the London outfit.

"As a footballer, we know that we are subject to a lot of rumours, which is more during the transfer window," Diop told France Football.

"After that, I focus on my football, trying to progress everyday training and being good at matches. That's all. I don't have a career plan. I just want to be the best player I can be.

"I live a little day by day. What has to happen will happen. And if it doesn't happen ... I just want to be efficient, that's all."
