The 29-year-old has been a revelation for the Hammers since arriving Marseille last summer, earning a nomination for last season’s PFA Player of the Year award after claiming nine goals and twelve assists in 31 Premier League appearances.
And the France international continued to flourish at Euro 2016, netting twice as his country reached the tournament’s final – where they ultimately lost 1-0 to Portugal.
Despite signing an improved contract in February, Payet’s form has created doubts over whether he’ll still be plying his trade with the East London club by the time next season comes around.
Indeed, he’s been linked with huge moves to some of Europe’s top clubs. Real Madrid have often been tipped to swoop for the attacking midfielder, whilst recent reports have suggested a shock £38million move to Inter Milan.
But speaking exclusively to The Sun, Payet – who Irons co-chairman David Gold rates at a whopping £50million – has insisted hes “100%” staying on for West Ham’s first season at the Olympic Stadium.
He said; “I’ve heard about all the interest and I’m flattered. But I love West Ham. We had a fantastic season and I can’t wait to play in the Olympic Stadium. I’m 100 per cent staying at West Ham, I love the club. I can tell the Hammers fans that.”
