Marseille agree terms with West Ham star

With Simone Zaza already back to Italy and signings Sofiane Feghouli and Jonathan Calleri getting ready for moves away, a Payet move would leave West Ham severely lacking in terms of firepower.

Slaven Bilic confirmed the news at his Thursday press conference but insisted the club does not want to sell the inspirational Frenchman.

He said: "This team, the staff, we gave him everything, we were always there for him".

"We aren't going to sell him, not whatsoever".

Amazon writes to Sushma, regrets hurting Indian sensibilities
The Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj's broadside against Amazon has forced it to tender an apology to the Indian Government. However, the product ticked off many as it was "disrespectful" and violates various laws of the Flag Code of India.

The playmaker was rewarded with a new West Ham contract in February of previous year, meaning he is tied to West Ham until 2021.

"If I was the manager I'd feel very angry as well and it shows that players are on top now rather than the clubs", he said.

Allardyce has lost just once in his last 10 Premier League games against former side West Ham, although that defeat was in his most recent meeting when at Sunderland in February 2016 (W5, D4, L1). "I have spoken to the club, the chairman and the vice chairman".

The result would have been a welcome distraction from the Payet saga and sees West Ham move up to 12th on the English Premier League table, in a much better position than they were prior to Christmas.

Dez Bryant's non-catch part of Cowboys-Packers storied playoff history
Jake Ryan and Blake Martinez were late in their run fills, but improved greatly throughout the game. Moreover, the two rookies this team leans on will have to play like veterans as well.

West Ham are, nevertheless, adamant they will not sell their star player during this transfer window - but that may have to change if they receive far higher offers and the damaging stand-off continues this month.

West Ham have pleaded with the French global to see through the season with them, as they desperately fight to climb the table, and have agreed to sell him this summer - but he has refused.

It would seem inevitable that clubs near the bottom would target such a prolific scorer, and it was the Hammers who stepped up with a reported £3 million bid. I can understand that players are being tapped up by other clubs, but this club gave him everything. When he wants to leave, he often leaves with the iron arm.

The French global was sensational for the East London club in his debut season in English football last term, netting nine goals and laying on 12 assists for the club as they finished a highly respectable seventh place in the top-flight.

Ice shelves are permanent floating sheets of ice that connect to a landmass, according to the National Snow and Ice Data Center . The massive rift in the Larsen C ice shelf was photographed on November 10, 2016, by the scientists of NASA's IceBridge mission.

"With the players being in the new stadium, they have got their own fears and we have got to try and take advantage of that if it is a distraction for them".
