Dugarry blasts Payet: Dimitri check yourself! You owe West Ham

Dugarry blasts Payet: Dimitri check yourself! You owe West Ham

Former Newcastle United striker Michael Owen has predicted on that Andy Carroll will score for West Ham United against London rivals Crystal Palace this weekend.

Payet's impressive club form also won him back his place in Didier Deschamps's France squad for Euro 2016 last summer.

West Ham manager Slaven Bilic has spoken of his anger after Dimitri Payet revealed he wants to leave the Premier League club.

Bilic has made it clear that West Ham won't be selling Payet in the winter window and the club seem to have tightened their resolve to keep their star man at all costs despite the player wanting to leave.

After the match, Bilic said: 'Payet is a great player so you are losing quality, but the team showed it is about the team and not individuals.

Manchester United were reported last month to have had talks with Payet's agent though a switch to Old Trafford looks unlikely. I feel let down.

The exciting France worldwide signed a new £125,000 a week five-and-a-half-year contract with West Ham last February.

West Ham have rejected a £20m bid from Payet's former club Marseille, with the 29-year-old keen on a return to his homeland. "I have spoken to the club, the chairman and the vice-chairman".

Such was the antipathy towards the France worldwide that a steward guarded the photo of him outside the ground and the fans used colourful language to chant what they thought about him prior to the game.

West Ham will be looking to end a run of three straight defeats when they play host to struggling Crystal Palace on Saturday.

French club Marseille are being mentioned as a possible target. He wants to leave.

Michail Antonio showed the commitment needed from players at any club, but the showing was all the more meaningful after the week the Hammers have been through with Payet refusing to play for the club.

Despite what Bilic might have said in his press conference this week, Goal have learned that West Ham are now preparing to sell Payet, who has gone on strike in order to force his departure from the London Stadium.

Payet embraced his first global competition with open arms as he ended Euro 2016 as one of France's best players - scoring three goals and assisting another two. Arsene Wenger is believed to have reservations over making a move.
