London - France international Dimitri Payet's long drawn out transfer saga ended on Sunday as Premier League side West Ham agreed to sell him to Ligue 1 outfit Marseille for a reported £25 million.

The 29-year-old -- who starred for the Hammers last season scoring 12 goals -- had effectively gone on strike at the beginning of the month.

He said he would not play for the club again and his and his wife's priority was a return to France and his former club.

However, having turned down two earlier bids -- rumoured to be £19m and £20m -- West Ham changed their tune with the higher offer and also having signed Scotland international Robert Snodgrass from Hull.
