Redknapp: he'll stink the place out!

Former Hammers boss Harry Redknapp believes that West Ham must sell Dimitri Payet furing the current transfer window.

Redknapp, who managed West Ham between 1995 and 2001 urged the club to sell the mercurial Frenchman before the deadline - in order to avoid further disruption to West Ham's season.

"They have just got to get the right price," Redknapp told TalkSport. "The deal has got to happen and it will happen, he won't be there at the end of the window - no chance.

"He has got to go, it will stink the place out if he plays and doesn’t want to play for you.

"He isn't the best player to play there, they have had hundreds of better players. People like Bobby Moore that played for the club all their lives and [Mark] Noble, they are proper West Ham.

"These guys come for a few years and are on their bikes again."

Meanwhile, Newcastle fan and YouTube star The True Geordie has also been having his say regarding the Dimitri Payet saga; if you are of a sensitive disposition or take issue with foul language, this one's definitely not for you...

In other transfer news today. reports in Italy are linking both West Ham and Watford with a move for Inter defender Andrea Ranocchia. The 28-year-old Italian international is currently out of favour at the San Siro and said to be open to a move to England and the Premier League.

Elsewhere, Leeds United are reported to have told West Ham to pay £15million if they want to sign 25-year-old New Zealand international Chris Wood. The 6'3" striker, who is his country's vice-captain behind West Ham's Winston Reid has scored 17 times in 29 appearances for the Championship side so far this season.
