​West Ham prepare for third bid from Marseille for Payet

Marseille are preparing to make a third bid for West Ham's wantaway midfielder Dimitri Payet, Sky Sports reports.

Talks on Monday, after a second offer from the French side of around £20m, failed to end in agreement over a transfer for the 29-year-old, who spent two seasons with Marseille before joining the Hammers.

The France international wants to leave West Ham and return to Marseille for family reasons.

But West Ham are believed to want at least £30m for their No 1 asset, with Marseille's previous offers understood to have been around £11m and £10m shy of that figure.
