West Ham United blocked Payet

The Daily Star understands that West Ham United blocked a transfer request from star man Dimitri Payet in the summer.

The France international has been in stunning form since signing from Marseille last summer, racking up thirty-eight appearances and scoring twelve goals in his first campaign with the Hammers.

He was named the clubs Player of the Season and also made the PFA Premier League Team of the Year before taking that form into the European Championships where he helped his country to the final, where they eventually lost to Portugal in extra-time.

Paris Saint Germain and Real Madrid were both interested in signing the twenty-nine year old during the close season though West Ham had no intention of losing their star player and rejected his request to be able to speak to other club.

Slaven Bilic’s side take on Accrington in the third round of the EFL Cup of Wednesday evening and are priced at 2/9 to win the match inside ninety minutes.
