Sky sources understand West Ham will not sell Dimitri Payet in January, despite comments from him to the French media

Dimitri Payet is not for sale and he will not be leaving West Ham under any circumstances this January, according to Sky sources.

Payet's commitment to West Ham has been questioned after the 29-year-old talked about playing for other clubs in an interview with French broadcaster RMC Sport.

A senior source at West Ham has told Sky Sports News HQ that Payet will definitely be staying and no key players will be leaving the club during the January transfer window, while Mark Noble said he would be shocked to see the France international leave next month.

Payet signed a new five-and-a-half-year West Ham contract in February and the Hammers are under no pressure to sell their most valuable asset.

Payet told RMC that playing for Arsenal could be "fun", and added that he wants to play in big competitions like the Champions League.

"When you see them [Arsenal] playing, as a technical player, you could only have fun in that team," he said. "They're candidates for the title every year."
