Hammers make French front page

payerpageWest Ham transfer news takes over the front page of France’s L’Equipe newspaper this morning.

The Hammers have been continuously  linked with Dimitri Payet by both by the British and French media but things appear set to come to a head in the next 5 days.

L’Equipe points out Marseille’s austerity plan which has already seen them lose some of their best players on free transfers over the past couple of summers and now they also need to raise cash by 30th June.

They claim that West Ham, and agent Willie McKay, working on their behalf, has made awage offer of €2.5m per year after tax on a five year contract for the 28 year old attacking midfielder.

They also report West Ham have also increased their offer for Payet from €11m to €15m, which works out to be around £10.7m.

  1. £10.7 million getting nearer the 2 Dave price and if they can get half back for Downing it will be job done,
    We will still need another creative player if Downing goes,
    But then we can unload Jarvis to cover half that price as well

  2. Downing aint going anywhere this window.He will stay unless Slav really,really doesnt rate him

  3. That rules out the French hills,mountains and lakes as an escape plan then lol

  4. Just get this deal done & dusted pls.I cant take anymore Payet transfer gossip 😉

  5. We need a large squad for this season, getting players in & keeping most of what we got. A few names mentioned should be allowed to leave. Nolan, O’Brien included

  6. It was reported in the Guardian that Marseille are trying to fend off West Ham with an improved offer which was suggested by manager Bielsa.I think we are being played by all concerned including Payet.I really don’t know what to think anymore other than impending doom.Looks like another campaign with Carroll and Nolanihino.Someone please tell me it’s not groundhog day again.

    • Phil? Hey, Phil? Phil! Phil Connors? Phil Connors, I thought that was you! Lol

  7. God, this guy better be good. There’s been as much fuss about him as if his name was Messi.
    I see there’s some reports about Remy being dead in the water and Carroll back in the frame. Personally I never believed the stories about Andy being sold. I still believe, used correctly, he can still be a big asset and could fit in to a Billic team.

  8. Never thought AC woukd be sold from the start.Just the normal Newcastle link rubbish doing the rounds 😉
