Payet can go, say West Ham

West Ham United are willing to sell Dimitri Payet - but not until Marseille make a suitable offer.

Earlier today KUMB.com revealed that representatives from West Ham and Marseille, who flew in from France this morning, had met to discuss the possibility of the French international returning to Ligue 1.

The Marseille party, who were represented by Club President Jacques-Henri Eyraud and Sporting Director Andoni Zubizarreta were joined by Payet's agent Jacques-Olivier Auguste.

It is understood that no fresh offer was made, although L'OM were instructed to return with an improved offer closer to West Ham's valuation if their intentions were serious.

The only bid made by Marseille so far, according to L'Equipe, was their opening gambit of 22million, with a further 3million to follow dependent on various clauses being met.

West Ham - who stated previously they have no intention of selling Payet - will hold out for circa 35million for their star asset, who recently revealed his desire to leave London due to personal issues.
