FANS CAN GET PAYET OFF THEIR BACKS
After selling Dimitri Payet to Olympique de Marseille for 25 million pounds, West Ham United are offering fans a deal to get the French forward off their backs as well. "Bring back your Payet shirt to any of the club shops & you will get a new replacement for 25 pounds," the Premier League club's vice-chairman Karen Brady said on Twitter. Basic short-sleeved 2016-17 West Ham team shirts without a player's name on the back usually retail at 55 pounds each but are currently reduced to 36.66 in a sale at the club's online store. French international Payet, who stood out for the host nation at Euro 2016, had become a fan favourite at the Hammers after he joined from Marseille in 2015 for a reported 10.7 million pounds. The relationship broke down when he told the East Londoners he no longer wanted to play for them and sought a return to Marseille.
