Payet wants to leave
The Dimitri Payet situation at West Ham is quite incredible.
Despite just signing a new contract last year, the Frenchman wants to leave West Ham – and the early rumour is that he could be Arsenal-bound.
Hammers boss Slaven Bilic dramatically revealed as much at his press conference today.
On the one hand you can understand Payet – he is a world class player playing for a club that’s become a running gag; but on the other, going on strike like this never looks good.
West Ham won’t sell him
But it won’t be that simple for Payet.
The club have no intention of selling him, and have told him that he won’t be playing for the West Ham first team until he changes his attitude.
We definitely haven’t heard the last of this one.
