Dimitri Payet scored 15 times and registered 23 assists in 60 appearances for West Ham United between 2015 and 2017.
It did not take long for Payet to become a firm favourite with the West Ham fans, and he scored 12 times during a very impressive first season at the club.
Things ultimately turned sour, however, and Payet left West Ham in January 2017 to seal a return to Marseille.
The 31-year-old has since scored 32 times and registered 57 assists in 151 appearances for Marseille, and has also started the 2018-19 campaign in fine form.

Indeed, Payet has two goals and one assist in four Ligue 1 appearances this term, and he is a wonderful talent whatever is said about his attitude.
The West Ham fans have been discussing what would be a sensational return to the London Stadium, and it would be fair to say that a number have differing opinions.
Whilst some would take Payet, others are simply not interested in a return.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the club’s supporters can be seen below:
Watching Monaco v Marseille and Payet has just put in a worldie cross which led to a goal.
I’m not crying. I promise.

We wouldn’t have anyone in the box for his crosses

25$ million and he’s more consistent than Arnie. I love Arnie but he’s got his moments. Payet, Lanzini, Felipe, Arnie up top. That’d have won 2 at home and maybe at Arsenal too. Shame but I truly feel Arnie is better off with someone up top with him. Plays like a CF

Forget that snake.

Payet might come home soon :/ I would take him back. Everyone deserves a second chance.

Watching it too should have got him back when we had the chance.
