Payet’s car vandalised as West Ham United row rumbles on

A car belonging to wantaway West Ham United star Dimitri Payet was recently vandalised outside his home, according to the Daily Mail.

The Frenchman sent shockwaves through the club and its fanbase when he informed manager Slaven Bilic that he no longer wants to play for the club.

The 29-year-old is believed to be trying to instigate a return to Marseille, who have had two bids – one thought to be around £20m – rejected by the Hammers, according to BBC Sport.

Payet has been shunned from the first team and forced to train with the Under-23s, while the Daily Mail claims that the playmaker is not welcome at team meetings and dinners.

The latest development in the saga is an unsavoury one, as the British publication reports that a brick was thrown through a window and aimed at Payet’s car.

Such is the Frenchman’s desire to return to his homeland, the midfielder has turned down salary offers of around £500,000-a-week from Chinese Super League clubs, reports Sky Sports.
