Speaking to the Sun, quoted by the Daily Star, Dimitri Payet has said he is 100% staying at West Ham United this summer.

The France international was the star of the show for the Hammers last season following his summer move from Marseille.

He continued his fine form at Euro 2016 with hosts France, putting in a series of impressive displays to establish himself as one of the key men in Didier Deschamps team.

His performances did not go unnoticed as fans and pundits alike praised him throughout the summer tournament in France.

Rumours of a big money exit from the Olympic Stadium have been numerous as a result, but he has now insisted that he will not be going anywhere.

“I’ve heard about all the interest and I’m flattered,” the Daily Star quotes him saying.

“But I love West Ham. We had a fantastic season and I can’t wait to play in the Olympic Stadium. I’m 100 per cent staying at West Ham, I love the club. I can tell the Hammers fans that.”

Payet’s comments will come as welcome news to West Ham fans, who would have been secretly fearing that they could lose their star man this summer.

Given his performances, it would not have been surprising to see any of the big European sides making a move for his signature at any point.

It appears he has no intention of moving anywhere any time soon though and keeping hold of him could turn out to be the best piece of business the Hammers will do this summer.
