Dimitri Payet next club odds: West Ham in mix for former star after Marseille contract ripped up, Saudi move most likely

DIMITRI PAYET is on the lookout for a new club after his sudden, shock departure from Marseille.

And Ladbrokes reckon he could follow in the footsteps of other top players coming to the end of their careers and make the move to Saudi Arabia.

Dimitri Payet transfer odds: West Ham in mix for ex-star but Saudi move likely


The bookmaker makes it short odds at 4/11 that he heads for the gulf state as a free agent.

Payet, 36, broke down in tears at a press conference which confirmed his departure from the French side.

The former Hammers fan favourite did not travel to Germany with his Marseille teammates for pre-season this week due to “personal reasons”.

He was contracted until June 2024 but club officials suddenly decided to terminate his agreement one year early.

The news came as a shock to fans with Payet suggesting he wanted to continue at the Ligue 1 giants beyond the summer.

He said: “I want to leave through the front door and, even at 36, I still have goals that keep me awake. I tell myself that I can’t stop until I win something with the club.”

Ladbrokes odds

Any Saudi Club – 4/11
Nantes – 5/1
Nice – 7/1
Any Turkish Club – 7/1
West Ham – 12/1
Any MLS Club – 12/1


But that now won’t be happening and Payet is now set for a new challenge as a free agent.

Ladbrokes believe Saudi Arabia will come calling shortly though and make it 4/11 he joins any Pro League club.

It’s then 5/1 he stays in Ligue 1 with Nice and 7s he joins Nantes.

Joining any Turkish club is also 7/1, while a return to West Ham comes next at 12/1, alongside a move to any MLS side.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “It looks as though Dimitri Payet looks set to follow a wealth of European stars to the Saudi League, with a mega-money deal looking increasingly inevitable following his immediate Marseille exit.”
