Dimitri Payet completes Marseille move

France Forward, Dimitri Payet has completed his £25m move to Marseille from West Ham.

Recall that Payet, who left Marseille in 2015 to join the Premier league club, refused to play against Crystal Palace two weeks ago and told West Ham he wished to return to his former club. The English club were initially not going to allow him go but they made a u-turn after accepting a fee or more than they paid for him, they however expressed disappointment at his decision.

“The club would like to place on record its sincere disappointment that Dimitri Payet did not show the same commitment and respect to West Ham United that the club and fans showed him, particularly when it rewarded him with a lucrative new five-and-half-year deal only last year. “I would like to make it clear that we have no financial need to sell our best players and that the decision to allow Payet to leave was in accordance with the wishes of the manager and the interests of squad unity.
To be frank, my board and I would have preferred for him to have stayed in order to make an example of him, as no player is bigger than the club.” David Sullivan, club Chairman said on their website.
