Dimitri Payet: I'm 100% staying at West Ham

France playmaker Dimitri Payet has insisted he is "100% staying at West Ham".

The 29-year-old had been linked with with a move away from the London club after a number of impressive performances during his country's run to the final of Euro 2016.

But the former Marseille player, who helped the Hammers to a seventh-placed finish in the Premier League last season, has stressed his commitment to Slaven Bilic's team.

"I've heard about all the interest and I'm flattered. But I love West Ham," Payet told the Sun.

"We had a fantastic season and I can't wait to play in the Olympic Stadium.

"I'm 100% staying at West Ham, I love the club. I can tell the Hammers fans that."
