Dimitri Payet Refuses To Play For West Ham United

The Hammers will refuse to sell the France international despite his not wanting to play for the club.


Dimitri Payet does not want to play for West Ham but the club will not sell him, manager Slaven Bilic says.

Bilic revealed the France international has expressed a desire to leave, but insists West Ham will stand firm and refuse to sell him during the January transfer window.

"We have said we don't want to sell our best players but Dimitri Payet does not want to play for us," Bilic said ahead of Saturday's Premier League match at home to Crystal Palace.

"We are not going to sell him. I spoke to the chairman and this is not a money issue. We gave him a long contract because we want him to stay.

"I am concentrated on the game and don't want to talk about transfers. There are still over two weeks to go."
