The agent of Dimtri Payet, Jacques-Oliver Auguste has said that he "cannot see" his client leaving West Ham United this summer.

Lighting up the continent

​Payet has been a revelation for the Hammers, with his 12 goals and 15 assists last season making a firm favourite amongst the claret and blue fans.

He has took that form onto the international stage and been arguably the best player at Euro 2016, with his two goals for hosts, France.

His excellent performances both domestically, and internationally, have attracted attention from the likes of Real Madrid, PSG and Inter Milan, but Auguste insists that Payet is happy in London. He told The Guardian that Payet has a "great contract" at the Hammers and insisted that he "cannot see him leaving".

Auguste continued, admitting that Payet is "happy in London" but admitted that one "never know[s] in football". But he did say that "only West Ham" know the "price they want" if they "decide to sell him".

Captain's approval

Payet's contribution and presence on the field has not only captured the hearts of the fans, but his fellow players. Club captain. Mark Noble is confident that Payet will be a Hammer next year.

Noble told Sky Sports News HQ that he thinks that Payet "will be" at the club next year and has been in "a lot of contact" with him "over the summer". The skipper said that Payet "loves the football club" and that he would "like" to see him back "in the summer".

He continued, saying that it is "great" to see him "doing so well" with France and believes he has been the "player of the tournament so far". Nobole says that the club "knew how good he was" and now the "world knows" of his talents.
