Report: Marseille abandons Payet chase

If Dimitri Payet had visions of returning to the Stade Velodrome, the embattled Frenchman may fancy booking a tour of the Cote d’Azur ground after Marseille reportedly gave up on its pursuit of the West Ham playmaker Friday.

Out of favour at West Ham and unlikely to play again in the claret and blue strip, Payet had been pining for a return to the club he enjoyed two seasons with prior to a Premier League switch in 2015.

Marseille has now given up on that hunt, with Sky Sports reporting that the Ligue 1 side will look elsewhere after failing to meet the London club’s valuation of the 29-year-old Euro 2016 standout.

More to come.
