Payet talks conclude

Representatives from Marseille are on their way back to France following a meeting with West Ham chiefs regarding Dimitri Payet.

The French delegation flew into London earlier this morning for talks regarding a possible move for the Euro 16 star, who has told West Ham that he no longer wishes to play for the club and wishes to return to France.

And when asked by a KUMB source how the meeting went, Jacques-Olivier Auguste, who was representing the French international, simply replied: "Very well".

Also present this morning was Marseille president Jacques-Henri Eyraud, who made his way to London via private plane, and other representatives from L'OM.

Marseille are hoping to seal a deal that will allow them to resign Payet, who moved from the Stade Vélodrome to West Ham in the summer of 2015 in a £10.7million switch.

Having already seen a £20million bid rejected, the French club will have to raise their offer considerably in order to persuade West Ham to accept - even though the Hammers maintain that they have no intention of selling Payet during the current transfer window.
