West Ham could be forced to loan out Dimitri Payet as Frenchman remains desperate to return home

West Ham could be forced to loan want away midfielder Dimitri Payet as the transfer saga turns ugly.

Marseille insist they will not improve on their latest offer – which was £25million plus £3m in add-ons – leaving Payet in limbo as he is demanding to go.

West Ham will not accept anything less than £35m but that now seems impossible with the deal deadlocked.

However, Marseille are hoping that a loan deal could be brokered with a fixed price in the summer with Payet insisting he wants to return to France to save his family.

High flying Ligue 1 outfit Nice are also looking into a loan deal for the Euro 2016 star.

Meanwhile, Payet was training with the Irons’ Under-23s on Tuesday at the Hammers’ Chadwell Heath training ground.

Payet is refusing to play for the East London club, and last featured as a substitute in the 5-0 FA Cup defeat by Manchester City on January 6.

The 29-year-old created a legendary reputation for himself at West Ham in the 18 months after joining from Marseille but is now public enemy No 1 among supporters.

Despite being the Hammers highest-paid player on £125,000-a-week he is determined to quit the club this month.

He has told the club he is facing a family crisis, with wife Ludivine determined to raise the couple’s three children in their homeland.
