Marseille striker Dimitri Payet looks even more likely to be turning out in a West Ham jersey when the season starts in July

The Irons have agreed a fee of £10.7million for the 28-year-old forward who flew to London for a medical at Upton Park on Thursday, June 24.

The club is thought to have offered him a deal worth £60,000 a week with a £10,000 appearance bonus.

Payet, who made the most assists in Ligue 1 last season had two years left on his contract at his French club but was facing a wage drop of around £12,000 after Marseille’s Champions League qualification failure.

A seasoned international, the striker has 15 French caps. And his arrival could be the tip of a Gallic iceberg if the rumours are to be believed.

Reports from France suggest it’s likely to be a busy summer for West Ham’s new manager Slaven Bilic who ois apparently confident of securing the services of two more French internationals.
