Payet heading for West Ham exit?

Payet assessing his options for January

French attacker Dimitri Payet is reportedly open to a move away from West Ham United in January. The 29-year-old still has four-and-a-half years left on his present deal.

Payet was the subject of interest from the likes of Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain over the summer, but the Hammers made sure they kept hold of his services.

Since then, Slaven Bilic's side have been in a dreaded run, and currently lingering just above the relegation zone.

While being questioned on his future, Payet refused to rule out a switch away from the London Stadium following his side's poor start to the league campaign.

"We've had a poor start. Leave in January? I'm asking other questions but I'm not closing the door to anything," he was quoted as saying on The Telegraph.

Real Madrid are currently under a transfer embargo, but there is still interest from Paris Saint-Germain, and Inter Milan for the France international.
