Maybe some what of an anti climax after so much speculation but West Ham United have finally officially announced the signing of 28 year French International Dimitri Payet from Marseille on a five year deal for a fee believed to be £10.7m.
He becomes the third signing of the summer following the arrival of Darren Randolph and Pedro Obiang.
Payet has been capped 15 times for France and scored 7 goals and made 17 assists for Marseille last season.
The club website announced “West Ham United are delighted to confirm the signing of the exceptional France international Dimitri Payet.”The outstanding 28-year-old joins the Hammers on a five-year contract, with a further one-year option, for an undisclosed eight-figure fee from French Ligue 1 side Olympique de Marseille.
Welcome to West Ham Dimitri!
