London - West Ham co-chairman David Sullivan has made it clear that the club have no plans to sell star midfielder, Dimitri Payet.
Sullivan’s comments come after Payet hinted that he could leave West Ham in the January transfer window.
“We've had a very poor start,” he had told Telefoot last week. “Leave in January? I'm asking other questions right now but I've closed the door to nothing.”
Despite Payet’s remarks, Sullivan is confident that the Hammers will be able to keep hold of the 29-year-old, especially as he signed a new five-and-a-half year deal in February.
"Dimitri has had an outstanding year and has become a vital player for France and I am so proud that he is a West Ham player," Sullivan told the club's website.
"He has played 16 times for his country in 2016, scoring seven goals and assisting five more, and inspiring them to the final of the European Championship.
"Dimi signed a new long-term contract in February, pledging his future to this club, and it is very much our intention that he remains with us for years to come."
Payet has represented West Ham in 11 games in all competitions this season and scored two goals to go with five assists.
The Frenchman continued his fine form for the French National team when he set up an equalizer before scoring the winner in a 2-1 victory over Sweden in a World Cup Qualifying Group A match on Friday at the Stade de France stadium.
Payet also won The Hammers' Goal of the Month award for October with his solo strike against Middlesbrough gaining 75% of the votes from fans.
