Hammers give lowdown on Payet situation



Dimi Payet’s discussion about leaving his options has only one flaw – he doesn’t have any at this stage other than West Ham United.

Although he is rated one of the hottest properties in the Premier League as yet the club has yet to be approached by any outfit interested in taking the Frenchman.

Manchester United and Paris St Germain have regularly been quoted as two clubs determined to fight it out for the midfielder but we were told ths afternoon: “There has honestly been no murmur from anywhere.

“Anything can happen at any time in this game but there’s usually a few smoke signals sent out but thus far “thus far there has been absolutely nothing.”

The possiblity of Payet leavng in the winter window are remote and even if interest arose in the summer the Hammers would want a minimum £25 million up front and £25 million on the knock.

Our source said: “We are discussing a hypothetical situation because right now there appears to be no interest.”

  1. £100m and they can have him or Martial, Rashford and £25 million if it’s UTD 😉 It is startling that the most creative player, European Championships player of the tournament plays for us, I suspect many of the clubs can see he is carrying a fair bit of timber and know it will take a month or two to work off that christmas log so they are better to wait until the end of the season when they can have him for a whole pre-season.

  2. If he leaves he leaves . Not the greatest player West Ham have ever had . Building a team around him has’nt worked anyway . Not exactly performing.
    Get some money for him now and use it to buy a decent striker . As for last Summer’s sighnings with Sakho returning I still think Zaza would come good . But that’s me .
    West Ham made panick buys for its new season in the LS and now they are making panick clear outs to cover thier mistakes .
    Instead of looking for loan players they should look at some players in the Champioship .
    That is after all where we come from . Palace have just knee jerked by sacking Pardew ( as we did back awhile ) maybe there are some players that might like the chance .
    Allardyce at Palace would turn them into a threat , have no doubt you Big Sam haters .
    If we continue as we are then Slaven won’t be far behind him . A bid for Defoe would’nt hurt either . I for one would welcome him back . We need look no further . One player in and five players out . Perfect .

  3. Yeah Hippo Head will turn Palace in to a threat Kev.A threat to Palace fans mental stability 😁😁

  4. Absolutely baffles me why Kev’s never even been considered when we need a new manager

  5. Yep – “Kevin for Manger” – MERRY CHRISTMAS ALL — and Let’s all hope WEST HAM go up with the calendars in 2017…..
