Marseille poised for Payet talks

Filed: Sunday, 15th January 2017
By: Staff Writer

A delegation from Marseille are flying into London this week with view to securing the transfer of Dimitri Payet.

However the group, led by Marseille's president Jacques-Henri Eyraud are likely to face stiff resistance from West Ham, who are still publicly refusing to part company with their star asset even though he has effectively gone on strike.

The French party are scheduled to fly to London tomorrow morning (Monday) ahead of a day of talks with Payet and his representatives, including agent Jacques-Olivier Auguste.

Eyraud and his entourage also hope to meet with West Ham chiefs before returning to France later in the day.

It has been suggested elsewhere that L'OM are seeking to tie up a permanent deal for the French international but loan him back to West Ham for the remainder of the current campaign.
