Dimitri Payet thanks West Ham fans

Payet Skill

The 29-year-old Frenchman cleaned up at the end-of-season awards.

Dimitri Payet has taken to Twitter to thank West Ham United supporters after being voted the winner of five different end-of-season awards.

The 29-year-old playmaker cleaned up at the awards bash on Tuesday night, picking Hammer of the Year, Signing of the Season, Players' Player of the Year, Goal of the Season, as well as the prize for being the club's top goalscorer this season after netting 12 times in all competitions.

Indeed, it has been a wonderful maiden campaign in East London for the Frenchman, whose £10.7 million switch from Marseille last summer looks like quite a coup by manager Slaven Bilic.

In addition to his 12 goals - which includes a number of truly world-class free kicks - the France international also has 12 assists, making him a deserving winner of the awards, and he thanked the club's fans on Twitter.

It's also been an excellent season overall for the Hammers, who sit sixth in the Premier League table and five points behind fourth-placed Manchester City in the race for Champions League qualification.

A top-four finish is unlikely, but they do have a game in hand, though they must win all of their final three matches - home to Swansea City, home to Manchester United and away to Stoke City - to have any chance you feel.
