West Ham fans are groaning in the Transfer Tavern as they make their way to the bar this morning, as a bitter contract saga rumbles on.
Payet’s situation has taken centre-stage in the back pages of the national press during the past week, after Slaven Bilic revealed the former Marseille man was refusing to play for the club and was demanding a January exit.
After initially refusing to sell, the Hammers are accepting the situation but will not let their star-man leave on the cheap, having already rejected two bids from Marseille- who seem the most likely to land his signature.
The 29-year-old is no longer welcome at West Ham team meetings or bonding dinners, whilst a brick being thrown through his window shows that the fans have turned their back on a player they used to adore.
Our landlord is keen to see this bitter saga come to an end, with the Hammers having a lot of work to do on the field.
