French international winger Dimitri Payet has informed West Ham he no longer wants to play for the Hammers, Slaven Bilic has confirmed.
The 29-year-old is said to be frustrated with West Ham’s failure to build on last term successes and is eyeing a move out of East London.
Arguably the best West Ham player from last season, Dimitri Payet struggled with the burden of high expectations throughout the current season himself. The French forward moved to West Ham in 2015 and his time with the Hammers appears to be coming to an end.
“We have said we don’t want to sell our best players, but Payet does not want to play for us. We are not going to sell him”, West Ham manager Slaven Bilic explained.
Payet has been the subject of intensified transfer talk over the past couple of weeks as Frenchman’s former side Marseille are reportedly weighing up an offer to bring him back to Stade Veledrome.
According to certain reports, Marseille are willing to offer as much as £35 million which could tempt West Ham to cash in on an unsettled star.
