Hello Hammers, here is Monday’s lunchtime round up.
Mark Noble has revealed that Dimitri Payet has not spoken to him in three weeks. (Sky Sports)
I think its time for Payet to leave now. He clearly does not care about anyone but himself, and we do not need people like that at our club. If Marseille offer £40m for him, then we should take it and run.
Graeme Souness has slammed Dimitri Payet and says the Frenchman’s attitude is awful. (Talksport)
I agree with Graeme. As I said, he needs to leave our club and quickly.
West Ham and Sunderland have been told that they will have to pay £15m if they want to sign striker Chris Wood. (Express)
He is a good striker, but I think we are set on Hogan now. I would prefer Hogan anyway.
West Ham’s players have rallied behind manager Slaven Bilic as the Dimitri Payet saga has turned toxic. (Evening Standard)
So they should. We proved on Saturday that we do not need Payet and that we are all fully behind him. Lets build on this now boys!
David Sullivan says West Ham have made a bid for a number of players this month, but the January window is proving tough. (Evening Standard)
I don’t think this window would be tough if you just offered the asking fees from other clubs. Things would be so much easier if you did that and stop haggling, David.
Scott Hogan’s move from Brentford to West Ham is being held up by proposed add-ons and clauses in the deal. (Sky Sports)
Hopefully we can come to an agreement soon and get this deal wrapped up. He would be a very good addition.
Former Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Petit says he does not understand why Dimitri Payet wants to leave West Ham and return to Marseille. (ESPN)
