The West Ham fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are delighted that Bilic stood firm…
Regardless of the fan base; everyone in the Football Transfer Tavern loves watching the Dimitri Payet.
The Frenchman has endured a stunning spell with West Ham, with his performances last year receiving plaudits globally.
Our landlord has touted him as one of the best players in Europe – and that will make the following piece of news even better for the West Ham faithful in the Tavern.
According to Squwaka, West Ham shot down a request from Dimitri Payet to allow him to join either Real Madrid or PSG over the summer – with the West Ham brass desperate to hold onto the Frenchman.
Whilst Squwaka do not confirm if a bid actually went in or not – they have stated that Payet asked West Ham to listen to offers from the Euro giants – to which he was firmly told no.
Our landlord agrees that West Ham are undoubtedly a better side with Payet in the team – but keeping him against his well is a very risky move.
If West Ham continue to perform badly, tempers could very easily fray at the London Stadium.
Payet’s form has continued to impress this season despite his late return from international, having bagged 3 assists in just 2 Premier League starts.
Just in case you had forgotten how good Payet was last year, take a look at this compilation video…
