Dimitri Payet hints at West Ham exit

West Ham midfielder Dimitri Payet has once again hinted that he could leave in the January transfer window after admitting the side’s form is affecting him.

The Hammers are currently 13th in the Premier League after a poor first half of the season.

Slaven Bilic’s men have picked up just 19 points from their first 17 games although they have now gone three games without defeat.

A draw away at Liverpool was followed by back-to-back wins against Burnley and Hull, but Payet still appears to be unhappy at the London Stadium.

With West Ham just five points clear of the relegation zone, Payet insists he has big ambitions and admits a possible switch to Arsenal would interest him.

He told RMC: “The situation at the club affects me, but I’m an ambitious person. I’m in a fight with my club and I’m giving everything for them, to get out of this difficult situation, but I’m not closing the door to anything.

“I miss the Champions League… I’ve got some great years ahead of me and I want to enjoy them by playing in important competitions.

I read that (Arsene) Wenger considers me the missing piece of the Arsenal’s game, but he’s never told me that! “We conceded five or six at home against them.

When you see them playing, as a technical player, you could only have fun in that team. They’re candidates for the title every year.”
