​Gold assures West Ham fans that Payet staying put

West Ham owner David Gold has revealed he expects Dimitri Payet to be available for selection for the visit of Watford after the international break, reports the London Evening Standard.

There were raised eyebrows when the France international was left out of the Hammers' squad to face Manchester City on Sunday.

Some supporters on social media leapt to conclusions as the transfer deadline nears.

And the West Ham co-chairman responded: "There is nothing 'happening' with Payet, I expect him to be available for the Watford game."
