West Ham co-chairman David Sullivan admits they quoted a £100 million price for Dimitri Payet during the summer.
The Daily Express reports with the window now closed, Jack Sullivan, co-chairman David Sullivan's son, revealed only one club was brave enough to enquire over Payet.
Speaking on Essex radio station PhoenixFM last night, Sullivan said that the Hammers quoted the interested club an asking price of £100m or otherwise there would be no deal.
The world-record fee was not met though to take Payet away from east London, following his £10.7m arrival from Marseille just last June.
West Ham's next fixture comes against Watford in the Premier League on September 10 where Payet is expected to return.
