Dimitri Payet has hinted he could leave West Ham in the upcoming January transfer window.

The France playmaker has been a star performer for the Hammers since making a £10.75m move from Marseille in June 2015, scoring 14 goals in 48 appearances for Slaven Bilic's side. 

West Ham rewarded Payet with a new five-and-a-half year deal in February, rumoured to be worth as much as £125,000-a-week, in a bid to stave off interest from potential suitors.

But following West Ham's poor start to the Premier League season, the 29-year-old has suggested he may be open to leaving the east London club.

When asked about his future plans, Payet told Telefoot in France: "We've had a very poor start. Leave in January? I'm asking other questions right now but I've closed the door to nothing."

West Ham have won just three of their opening 11 matches and currently sit in 16th place, just a point clear of the relegation zone. 

Payet added: "Until now, I always chose my clubs depending on the sports project. I work like that. Until I can play at a level like this, it will be the case.
