Bilic urges West Ham to hand Payet new deal

Payet has been a key player for the Hammers this season and has recently been linked with moves to bigger clubs.

“We have to move and the most important move is to keep your best players and to add some new players who are needed and Dimitri Payet is our best player – I have no problem whatsoever to say that,” said Bilic.

“Of course, I would love to have him happy, long term, at the club.

“He signed only a few months ago but he has made a huge impact – a very, very huge impact – and while he has a long contract, five-and-a-half years, he is in a good position.”
