Dimitri Payet's agent suggests West Ham got a bargain, hints at what future may hold

France's Dimitri Payet scores their second goal

Mark McKay has suggested whether Payet will still be at West Ham next season.

West Ham's Dimitri Payet

The agent of West Ham United star Dimitri Payet has delivered an update on the midfielder's future, telling Sky Sports that it would now take "ridiculous money" for a club to prise him away from the Hammers.

Payet enjoyed a remarkable debut season in England, racking up 12 goals and 12 assists in all competitions for the Irons, form which has seen his star rise dramatically over the last 10 months.

Not only has he been the stand-out man at club level, but he has also reintegrated himself into the French national side and become a vitally important player for Didier Deschamps' team, something illustrated perfectly by his assist and stunning last-minute winner in France's opening Euro 2016 clash with Romania.

For West Ham United fans watching that performance, there was cause for concern as Payet's profile continues to soar, with several top European clubs already thought to be chasing his signature.

Now, the 29-year-old's agent, Mark McKay, has delivered the latest update on his future, telling Sky Sports that he believes his client is happy at the club and stressing that it would take an astronomical bid to convince West Ham to sell.

When asked if the Hammers got a bargain in signing Payet last summer, McKay replied: "I think so, I think Dave Sullivan has done really well. £10.5 million? Now he could be any price you wanted after his performances.

"As far as I'm concerned he's been happy at West Ham. It's down to West Ham that he's in the position he is right now, he's doing great for France. To get him now, you'll have to be talking ridiculous money. But football's football, you never know."

Though it came with that final disclaimer, those quotes will likely come as music to the ears of West Ham fans who are desperate to see the club keep hold of their star man this summer.

Even if Payet is prised away from the Olympic Stadium over the next few months, the Hammers are likely to become a very rich club indeed.
