He may be one of the most sought after playmakers in world football, right now but Dimitri Payet is not interested in leaving West Ham.
Many believed the former Marseille man would be on his way to one of the giants of European football following an outstanding debut campaign for the Hammers and an impressive Euro 2016. However, Slaven Bilic has been handed a huge boost with Payet's latest comments to The Sun:
"I've heard about all the interest and I'm flattered.
"But I love West Ham. We had a fantastic season and I can't wait to play in the Olympic Stadium."
"I'm 100 percent staying at West Ham, I love the club. I can tell the Hammers fans that."
The Hammers future is beginning to look brighter than ever, with the club holding onto their star players and heading into the Olympic Stadium next season. Under the guidance of Bilic, there could be little to stop the East London club breaking into the top four sooner rather than later.
