West Ham: Fans react as Dimitri Payet is linked with return in latest transfer news

West Ham United have registered an interest in re-signing midfielder Dimitri Payet from Marseille, that is according to a report from French news outlet L’Equipe via The Guardian.

The 32-year-old previously played for the Hammers between 2015-17 and he excelled during his time in east London, particularly in the 15/16 campaign.

Indeed that year the French international scored 12 goals and provided 15 assists in all competitions (Transfermarkt), helping them finish seventh in the Premier League and reach the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

However, he eventually left to join Marseille after claiming that he had become “bored” of the club’s defensive style of play and that he had “no desire” to play in the lower reaches of the Premier League (The Guardian).

The report suggests that West Ham have not yet made a firm offer for the playmaker, whilst there have also been conflicting reports from Sky Sports which suggest that there isn’t any interest despite L’Equipe’s claim.

Payet has been playing quite well this season, scoring eight goals and providing four assists in all competitions (Transfermarkt). However, it seems that the Hammers supporters are divided on whether they want to see the controversial character return.

Some do want him, suggesting that he would add more quality to the side. However, others are unwilling to forget the way in which he left a few years ago and because of that do not want him back. Here is what some had to say on Twitter…
