West Ham sign midfielder Dimitri Payet from Marseille

West Ham have signed France international midfielder Dimitri Payet from Marseille on a five-year contract in a deal worth more than £10m.
The 28-year-old is the Hammers’ third summer recruit following Spanish midfielder Pedro Obiang and Republic of Ireland goalkeeper Darren Randolph.
West Ham say Payet has signed for “an eight-figure” fee, although exact details have not been released.
There is an option for another 12 months beyond the initial contract.
Payet has set up 51 goals over the past six Ligue 1 seasons with St-Etienne, Lille and Marseille, according to his new club.
“I like attacking football and the fact they’re counting on me to help achieve that gives me a sense of responsibility,” he said.
Payet has played 15 times in the Champions League, and will be available for West Ham’s Europa League campaign, which begins on 2 July under new manager Slaven Bilic.
