Hammers hold Payet talks


West Ham have opened contract talks with midfielder Dimitri Payet.

The 28-year-old signed a five-year deal when he joined West Ham from Marseille in the summer, scoring six goals in his first eight months at the club.

While West Ham has denied reports that Payet has demanded a new and improved contract, the club has confirmed talks are ongoing with the player and his representative.

"Following reports in today’s media, West Ham United would like to clarify that at no time have Dimitri Payet or his agent made any demands to the Club over a new contract," the club said in a statement.

"However, the Club can confirm that due to Dimitri’s outstanding impact since his arrival at the Boleyn Ground, they have initiated amicable and productive talks about an improvement and extension to his contract. Those talks are progressing well and it is hoped they can be concluded shortly.

"Dimitri would like to make clear that he is very proud to play for West Ham United and he appreciates the support he has received from the Board, manager and fans since he joined the Club in the summer."

Payet took to Twitter to clarify reports that he has made demands over a new contract.

"I say & I repeat I'm proud to wear the shirt of west ham My future is here and I hope for many years," he wrote.
