West Ham agree Payet Deal


Following the departure of Dimitri Payet from West Ham the club has offered to replace shirts with the player's name written on the back for a fee of £25.

He clarified that the English club has no financial need to sell its best players, adding that the decision to allow the French player to leave was taken "in accordance with the wishes of the manager and the interests of squad unity".

Dimitri Payet's acrimonious divorce fromWest Ham ended late Sunday as the France worldwide signed for former club Marseille in a 30 million euro (£25 million, $31.3m) deal.

West Ham reportedly rejected a £20 million bid from Marseille earlier this month.

Former West Ham United winger Trevor Sinclair has called Dimitri Payet "a spoiled brat" after the playmaker left the Hammers for former club Marseille.

Many Hammers fans were delighted when he extended his stay in London previous year, but after struggling in the first half of the season, the midfielder requested a move, and is even believed to have isolated himself from his teammates to force through a transfer.

Sullivan said the management had considered keeping Payet and forcing to sit on the reserve bench for six months to "make an example of him" but that would only cost the club £2-3 million in wages.

"We're going home", Payet tweeted alongside a photo of a small private plane with its door open.
