Dimitri Payet admits N’Golo Kante is the signing of the season

Leicester City

Dimitri Payet is considered one of the best players in the Premier League.

Speaking to the official West Ham website, Dimitri Payet has admitted that N’Golo Kante of Leicester City could win the player of the season award, after his great year in the Premier League.

When asked whether he has been the signing of the Premier League season, Payet said: “I am happy with how I have performed this season and how the team are doing so far. But I would say there are other players such as Kante who arrived from Ligue 1 and has had an incredible season in Leicester's rise to the top of the table. A lot of that is down to him.”

Payet is considered one of the contenders to win the Premier League player of the season award, having excelled since his summer move from Marseille.

He is a joy to watch, and has undoubtedly been one of the best players in the division, with many also suggesting he has been the signing of the season.

However, Payet himself believes that Kante has actually been the better signing, as he has played a key role in sending Leicester to the top of the Premier League table.

Kanye, like Payet, also arrived from Ligue 1, and has taken English football by storm. His energetic displays in the middle of the park have been a key factor in the Foxes’ success, and it is no surprise that they failed to win last night with Kante out injured.
