Payet Talks Possible January West Ham Exit

share on:

Dimitri Payet was asked if he was considering a January exit from West Ham and he said “he is not closing the door to anything”.

The midfielder was outstanding in his first season with West Ham, helping them to seventh on the table and taking France to the final of the Euro 2016 on home soil.

However, since moving to the London Stadium, West Ham have struggled in all competitions. They have won just three of 11 EPL matches and failed to qualify for the group stages of the Europa league.

This has led to speculations on whether the 29-year-old playmaker will switch to a better club to compete for major honours. And in a recent interview, he was asked directly if he was considering an exit in January.

“I’m asking myself other questions, I have ambition, but I’m not closing the door to anything,” he told Telefoot.

“It’s always the sports project that interests me. For now, PSG [Paris Saint-Germain] and OM [Marseille] did not come to me [with an offer].”

Of the Hammers’ poor opening to 2016-17, he added: “It was a very bad start with West Ham, we’re trying to get into the top half of the table.”
