West Ham United captain, Mark Noble, has said that he expects Dimitri Payet, to be at the club next season.

Remaining a hammer

It has been a stellar campaign for Payet, his excellent form for Slaven Bilic's side earned a recall for the French side.

He has repaid Didier Deschamps faith, as he has arguably been the best player at the Euro 2016 tournament so far.

His excellent form may have attracted the attention of some of the continent's biggest sides, but Noble is confident that he will be a Hammer next season.

At the opening of West Ham's new club store, Noble told Sky Sports that he think's Payet "will be" at the club next season and said that he has been in a "lot of contact" with him "over the summer" and said that Payet "loves the football club."

He continued saying that "football is football" and you "never know" what might happen but said that everyone would  like to see him "back here in the summer."

On his performances so far, he said that it is "great" to see him "doing so well" and has been "player of the tournament so far" and now the "world knows how good he is."
