Payet’s agent breaks silence on Dimi’s future


Dimi Payet’s agent, Mark McKay has told Sky Sports News today that Dimitri Payet is ‘happy at West Ham’ adding it would take “ridiculous money” to sign the West Ham midfielder in this summer transfer window.

Chelsea, Manchester City, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain have all been linked with interest or bids for the 29-year-old, with figures quoted as high as £60m.

“As far as I am concerned, he’s been happy at West Ham and it’s down to West Ham that he’s in the position that he is in,” McKay told Sky Sports News.

 “He’s doing great now for France and to get him now, you’ve got to be talking ridiculous money. But football is football, so you never know.”
He added: “When he first came last year, we hoped for the best with him. We knew that he was a really good player, but I don’t think anyone could really expect what he has gone on to do in the Premier League so far. The game against Romania the other night was a joy to watch.”

  1. That’s it then,
    Just watching Slav,s master class on ITV educating the other panel members who are looking on in awe,
    I think we have found Woy,s replacement but not for a couple of more years please ,
    In fact no he is not English he should stay out for 10 years,
    Westham before country

  2. 20 years bubs ! Let’s be greedy !

  3. God to hear these words, usually I only trust a football agent as far as I could throw him, but he acknowledges that Payet is happy at West Ham and that our club and Bilic have made him the player he is today.

    Also good to hear that the agent seems keen on seeing his player happy rather than pushing for a move at all costs. Of course they cannot rule a transfer out completely.
    What if Real come knoking with a ridiculous 100 million offer and both Payet and West Ham would be willing to go along with that ?

    Bilic has made the environment around our club very attractive for players to join.
    It’d take quite a lot to tempt players away I’d reckon…

  4. A thinly desguised attempt to flog payet for a reticulous amount of money to the highest bidder whilst making it look like he has the interests of the player and West Ham at the forefront of his mind. Got to admire the agents style.
