Dimitri Payet likely to stay at West Ham claims agent
Payet a player in demand although Frenchman likely to remain with West Ham next season
June 30th, 2016
Dimitri Payet has been one of the stand-out players at Euro 2016, with the Frenchman’s stock rising after virtuoso performances against Romania and Albania.
Payet also had a stellar season in a West Ham shirt last season and it appears that the London club are set to retain his services for at least another campaign, with the player’s agent admitting that the future in the short-term is with the Hammers.
Payet’s long-term adviser, Jacques-Olivier Auguste, told the Guardian: “He has a great contract with West Ham so I cannot see him leaving. Dimitri is happy in London,” he said. “You never know in football but only West Ham know what price they want if they decide to sell him.”
Inter became the latest club to show an interest in the player who has also been linked with the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona.
“As a fan, I would love to see Payet in an Inter shirt,” said the honorary president Massimo Moratti. “However, the great champions are currently elusive, you have to be lucky enough to find the right opportunity. We are missing two to three players to be competitive. The important thing is to have solid players that ensure continuity.”
