West Ham United fans in the Transfer Tavern are pleased to see their club adopt a firm stance regarding the future of their fan favourite, after they informed a Premier League rival he’s not for sale.
The Daily Mirror states the Hammers have issued a warning to Chelsea, and other interested parties, by stating that French international Dimitri Payet will not be sold for any price in the forthcoming transfer window.
Payet was in scintillating form during his maiden campaign in the Premier League and continued with those displays on the international stage, netting a dramatic late winner to hand host nation France an opening victory over Romania in the European Championships.
Chelsea scouts have urged incoming boss Antonio Conte to make a move for the former Marseille man, who cost the Hammers just £10.7m last summer, but the east London side are insisting their iconic talisman is priceless and will not accept any departure.
Our landlord feels there is no chance Payet will move on this summer, especially as he signed a new £125k-a-week deal just a few months ago.
How much is Payet genuinely worth? Let us know in the comments below!
