"West Ham United will not tolerate any type of discrimination and has, therefore, acted swiftly due to the serious nature of these claims".

"Not many people have played for West Ham United longer than me and African players have always been made most welcome by the fans and club", said Cole in a statement to the Press Association.

Though the Hammers have since suspended Henry and stated that they are against discrimination, Sakho has since accused the club of being "liars" and said on Snapchat: "They (are) scared and now everyone (is) gonna see why I wanna leave this club..."

"Our action follows a full and thorough investigation".

West Ham suspended Tony on Thursday morning after the story broke the previous evening and, following an investigation, they have chose to part company with the 60-year-old.

"The West Ham United family is an inclusive one where, regardless of gender, age, ability, race, religion or sexual orientation, everybody feels welcome and included".

It is alleged Henry said: "We had problems with Diafra Sakho". I mean, look, there are top African players. He's left, so great.

Reports broke earlier this week claiming that Henry had told agents West Ham were not interested in signing players from Africa after a bad experience with former striker Diafra Sakho.

Henry said: "We don't want more Africans, he's not good enough".

Senegal striker Diafra Sakho left the club in the January transfer window to join Rennes, with Ghana global Andre Ayew heading to Swansea.
