Payet claims mystery back injury

thumbThe Telegraph quote club sources as telling them that Payet told West Ham on Tuesday that he would “never kick a ball again for West Ham” if he did not get a move in the transfer window. Today he allegedly told the club he is now suffering from a back injury  and therefore cannot train and reiterated that he wants to go.

The same club source confirmed to the Telegraph that Marseille have bid for their former player and described the offer as “low”. It is thought to be just under £20 million plus a £2.5 million bonus if Marseille qualify for the Champions League.

If Payet claims he is injured his advisors may dispute and fight any attempts to fine the player two weeks wages for breaching his contract. The club will want to independently verify whether the player is injured.

Other reports claims the club had already agreed the player could leave in the Summer so are stunned he has decided to try and force a move now.

  1. Spineless, no doubt.

  2. No way back after this treachery.Take the money and get rid of the disruptive influence and please spend a good chunk of money on players who want to play for our club.God knows we need some cheerful news after this seasons disasters.COYI.

  3. yellow bloody streak down it

    So he has a bad back eh ? well flying to Marseille for a medical wont help that will it ?

    he’s coming out of this looking so bad he’s making Ince look loyal

  4. 10 other players should have back injuries carrying him all season, scumbag

  5. An unfulfilled bloke from Marseille
    Came over to West Ham to play
    We made him a god
    And then the fat s*d
    Betrayed us and called it a day

  6. This tells you all you need to know about Dimitri Payet.Money orientated,born lier,lazy,no guts.Nobody should sign this “person”.Call yourself a professional-JOKE

  7. What is going on. Valencia wanted out. Sakho supposed to have a back injury. Payet claiming he has the same and reported players we are chasing do not want to play for us.
    There’s more to this than meets the eye

  8. To be fair Darkhorse i wouldnt really use those two nutcases as a good gauge as to most players feelings & Payet is just doing what Payet does.
    Now if players like Noble,Antonio,Cresswell & Reid all suddenly wanted out then i might be concerned 😉
