£100m valued West Ham star wants to stay at club

West Ham star Dimitri Payet is committed to staying at the club next season and is excited to play at the Olympic stadium.

Payet revealed that while he is flattered by the interest being shown in him he will be staying in East London next season.

“I’ve heard about all the interest and I’m flattered,” Payet told The Sun.

“But I love West Ham. We had a fantastic season and I can’t wait to play in the Olympic Stadium.

“I’m 100 per cent staying at West Ham, I love the club. I can tell the Hammers fans that.”

Hammers chairman David Sullivan recently revealed that Payet is worth £100 million and that even if the club receive their asking price they still would not sell the star man.

Speaking on the set of his new movie, the Hatton Garden Heist, Sullivan was quoted by the Mirror as saying: “It is the TV money. It is also clubs in Europe with Chinese money.

“But Payet is not for sale. Just because a big club wants him, tough luck. He is worth £100million. Even at his age.”

Sullivan made it pretty clear that Payet is under no circumstances available for sale and it seems the French international feels the same way.

Payet was one of the stars of the European Championships scoring three times in five games for France over the course of the tournament.

The France international had a brilliant breakthrough season for West Ham United after joining last summer from Marseille. The 29-year-old played a key role in the Hammers finishing the league campaign in seventh-place netting 12 goals and providing 15 assists in 38 appearances.
