West Ham United owner David Gold has outlined to BBC Radio 5 Live four reasons that will keep Dimitri Payet at the club this summer.

Payet has had a fine summer at Euro 2016, putting in a series of impressive performance for France as they reached the final of the tournament.

While they were eventually beaten by Portugal in Sunday’s clash to leave the Hammers star heartbroken, it is still a tournament that he can look back on with immense pride.

His performances have not gone unnoticed, with fans and pundits alike commenting on how impressive he has been.

As a result, there has been widespread talk of a potential exit from West Ham this summer, but Gold believes there are several reasons that won’t be the case.

“You make him as happy as you can,” he told BBC Radio 5 Live.

“He has a great relationship with the manager. He’s settled in London with his family, he fans adore him and we’re going to the Olympic Stadium. We’ve done everything we possibly can do and I’m hoping that’s enough.”

While Gold is hopeful of keeping Payet, it would not be surprising to see any of the big European sides make a move for him.

A strong season in the Premier League brought him to attention over the last year, and his fine performances in France have only helped to further highlight his abilities.

Should any club wish to sign him though, Gold insists that that West Ham will not even consider a sale for anything less than £50 million.

“The super clubs would come after a player of his ability but we wouldn’t even listen to an offer under £50 million,” he added.

“Even then we need to keep our best players. We just don’t welcome any offers for Dimitri. The team is built around him, he is not for sale.”
