West Ham United appear to be on the verge of cutting ties with unsettled midfielder Dimitri Payet, and fans have had their say on Twitter.
Sky Sports report that the Premier League club will hold talks with Marseille this week regarding a potential deal involving the wantaway star.
Payet left the Ligue 1 club to join West Ham in a rumoured £10.5m deal in 2015, and now it seems that he could return to France.
The broadcaster claims that the Hammers are not prepared to accept anything less than £30m for Payet, who scored nine goals and registered 12 assists in 30 league matches last season.
If Payet does leave before the end of the month, it will be a sour departure after manager Slaven Bilic revealed last week that the 29-year-old is refusing to play for the club.
The team did not appear to miss him at the weekend, though, as they sealed a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace on home turf.
Upon hearing the news of Payet’s potential return to France, fans have given their views on social media.
Suprised no wnglish clubs have dived in for payet. Clearly gonna have to leave. Seems a waste to go back to marseille

If Payet has got stroppy to push a move to Marseille, then he's an empty head & West Ham are better without him

Wee bit sick of English media getting on like West Ham plucked Payet from obscurity . Marseille are a much bigger club than West Ham
