BREAKING NEWS: West Ham agree £25m Payet fee with Marseille

Updated: 

West Ham have announced they have agreed a fee of £25million for the sale of star playmaker Dimitri Payet to Marseille.

A deal was agreed between the clubs on Sunday, with the playmaker reportedly travelling to his native France to complete a medical.

Payet joined the Hammers from the Ligue 1 side in June 2015, setting the Premier League alight during his first season in England.

His performances helped manager Slaven Bilic guide West Ham to a seventh-place finish in the final campaign at Upton Park, as Payet earned a key role with France during their Euro 2016 campaign on home soil.
