West Ham manager Slaven Bilic claims there is "no money in the world" that would force the club to sell Dimitri Payet.
French playmaker Payet has impressed since joining the Hammers from Marseille in the summer for £10m.
That has led to speculation the 28-year-old, back in action after injury, could leave Upton Park during the current transfer window but Bilic is determined to hold onto such a prize asset.
"From my point of view there is no money in the world that we would let him go for," Bilic said ahead of their FA Cup fourth-round clash with Liverpool on Sunday.
"The things he does on the pitch, he also does in training. He is great to have in the squad and at the club.
"In previous seasons we were like a selling club, but we are moving stadium, we are talking and acting like we want to go up as a club, and for me the most important thing regarding that is not to sell your best players.
"Dimitri Payet, for me, no way. He is our player and he is staying.
"At this club there have been big players, but I think the last player who made such a big impact, in basically no time, is Paolo Di Canio."
Payet has scored six goals in 19 appearances since joining West Ham.
