Julian Dicks reacts on Twitter to Dimitri Payet signing

West Ham

Dimitri Payet has joined Premier League outfit West Ham United from French club Marseille.

Julian Dicks has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his reaction to the signing of Dimitri Payet by West Ham United.

The France international winger has moved to the Hammers from Ligue 1 outfit Marseille, as announced on the Premier League club’s official website.

Payet has signed a five-year contract with a further one-year option for an undisclosed eight-figure fee.

Former West Ham defender Dicks believes that the 28-year-old will prove to be a good signing, but he has urged the Frenchman to be consistent.

Good signing for West Ham

The signing of Payet is a real statement of intent from West Ham, who have lofty ambitions for the future.

The Frenchman was one of the best players in Ligue 1 last season, helping Marseille finish fourth in the league table.

The former Lille star scored seven goals and created 134 chances in 36 league appearances.

The 28-year-old had a pass accuracy of 80% and a shot accuracy of 47%, and won three headers, 66 dribbles and 17 tackles.

Payer’s arrival at West Ham is going to make the London outfit real challengers for a top-six or top-eight finish in the Premier League next season.
