Speaking to West Ham United’s official website, Mark Noble has said he believes Dimitri Payet has been the best player at Euro 2016.

The midfielder has been one of the star performers for France this summer as France have reached the semi finals of the competition.

He was their key man in the group stages, scoring in their wins over Albania and Romania in their first two games.

He has continued that fine form in the knockout stages so far, and was once again at the top of his game as they beat Iceland last week.

One man who has been impressed is his Hammers teammate Noble, who believes that Payet has been the best player at Euro 2016.

“For me, Dimitri has been the best player at the tournament,” he told whufc.com.

“For me, we knew how good he was before the Euros but I’m not sure France knew how good he was, and now the whole world knows how good he is!”

With Euro 2016 coming towards a conclusion, it will be interesting to see if any big sides come in for Payet this summer.

He has certainly caught the eye at Euro 2016 with his performances and has comfortably been among the best players at the tournament.

Rea Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has already shared his admiration of his compatriot and West Ham will be praying no big offers come in for him.
