West Ham United’s official Twitter account has filmed Dimitri Payet in training, with the Frenchman stepping up his return from injury.
Payet has been out since the start of November, since he picked up an injury while playing against Everton.
West Ham have won just one of their last nine matches, in the 28-year-old’s absence, but it seems that he could be back in contention in the imminent future.
Payet has a chance of featuring against West Ham’s match against Liverpool, and from the footage of training this afternoon he appears to have fully recovered from his injury problem.

Payet was arguably West Ham’s best player over the early part of the season, as Slaven Bilic’s men made a blistering start.
The Hammers’ attacking threat has been lessened since Payet has been sidelined, though, and they have dropped down into ninth place.
West Ham will be delighted to welcome him back into their team, as they aim to beat Liverpool for the second time this term.
When the two teams met earlier in the second, Bilic’s men ran out 3-0 winners and a repeat scoreline would be very welcome at Upton Park.
