West Ham agree $41.5 million Payet fee with Marseille

30 January, 2017, 01:06 | Author: Felix Jensen

It is understood the fee is being paid in instalments and the proceeds will be made available to manager Slaven Bilic for strengthening the squad when required.

But on Sunday afternoon Payet tweeted a photo of a private jet with the boarding door open, along with the words "coming back home".

Neither Marseille nor West Ham have confirmed the deal.

After the confirmation that he was leaving the Premier League club, this is what Payet posted on his personal Twitter account.

The France global had expressed his desire to leave the Premier League side earlier this month, and refused to play for them, according to Hammers boss Slaven Bilic.

Payet joins Patrice Evra, the veteran French defender who arrived at Marseille last week on a free transfer from Juventus.

He excelled in his first season with the London club, scoring 12 goals and earning a nomination for the PFA Players' Player of the Year award.

The Frenchman's refusal to play for the club prompted anger from West Ham fans, who will likely be pleased that a deal has now been agreed.

Payet has agreed a contract of between four and five-and-a-half years with Marseille.
