West Ham Agree To Sell Payet For £25 Million To Marseille

The 29-year-old forward has completed a £25million move back to the Stade Velodrome after becoming unhappy at West Ham following one prolific campaign with the London club.

"I would like to make it clear that we have no financial need to sell our best players".

The Hammers were prepared to pull the plug on the deal unless Payet returned the money he was paid while refusing to play for the club.

West Ham midfielder Dimitri Payet has joined Marseille after the two teams agreed a deal for the French global.

"He will be presented during a press conference this Monday, January 30, 2017 at 2:30 p.m.at the Robert Louis-Dreyfus Center in the presence of OM President Jacques-Henri Eyraud and sports director Andoni Zubizarreta".

Ray Wilkins has labelled Ligue 1 "pathetic" and claims West Ham should have stopped paying Dimitri Payet after he refused to play for the club. I am very happy to come back here.

Payet will turn 30 in March and hasn't played since appearing as a substitute in West Ham's 5-0 FA Cup loss to Manchester City on January 5. "(West Ham boss) Slaven Bilic has his own opinion about what I did. "I don't want to talk about this at the moment, but I don't have to justify my behaviour". I will speak about those things when the time is right.

He could play away to Metz in the French league on Friday night.

Still, because of the money he was getting from West Ham and the fact that it was hard to find an elite team that had a starting spot available for him, it appeared that he'd remain a Hammer and everything would be good.

Following a controversial departure from West Ham, Dimitri Payet is eager to prove his worth at Marseille.

French global Payet, who stood out for the host nation at Euro 2016, had become a fan favourite at the Hammers after he joined from Marseille in 2015 for a reported £10.7 million.

He racked up 15 objectives in 60 looks for West Ham as well as was compensated with a brand-new five-and-a-half year bargain last February.
