On the move
Dimitri Payet is leaving West Ham.
You must have been living under a rock if you don’t know that – and now it seems that the player is set to move to Ligue 1, and to Marseille according to one journalist, meaning the player has come full circle in his career.

Forcing the transfer
Payet is undoubtedly forcing the transfer, with reports even claiming that he could well fake an injury, meaning he would not have to play for the club.
His behaviour has gutted fans and also his manager Slaven Bilic, who has supported him so heavily though the time they’ve worked together – but now the club feel there is no alternative but to sell him, and it looks like he will get his wish to return to Marseilles.
That has made him persona non grata with West Ham fans, who have even used his shirt as a doormat this weekend – and a way back for Payet at the club seems impossible.
