West Ham were truly united against Crystal Palace

In a clip captured by West Ham supporter Jamie Abel, some could even be seen spitting on the claret and blue top directly in front of the turnstiles at the stadium.

Nevertheless, there has been a damaging dip in the French international's form this season compared to last, and it has been one of the factors that has led to the Hammers experiencing a disappointing Premier League campaign so far.

West Ham United playmaker Dimitri Payet has informed the club of his desire to leave and no wants to play for them, manager Slaven Bilic revealed on Thursday.

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

'We have answered a few of the critics, with everything that has been going in during the week and everyone talking.

In a statement on the Hammers website, Gold said he wants the France worldwide to honour the five-year contract he signed in February 2016 and abandon his desire to push through a move to Ligue 1 club Marseille.

The 29-year-old, who signed a bumper £125,000-a-week five-year contract last February, is agitating for a move after Marseille's new billionaire owner, Frank McCourt, made him a priority in the Ligue 1 side's recruitment drive.

Fans hurled abuse at Payet, their former idol, with the club refusing to sell a player still with three-and-a-half years left on his contract.

West Ham will be looking to end a run of three straight defeats when they play host to struggling Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Payet reportedly wants to return to his native France, to play for the fabulously wealthy Marseilles FC, because he is "homesick".

And speaking after the game, Bilic praised Carroll, claiming the 28-year-old is the "complete player".

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.

"Let's get serious. I have a situation with a player". He turns 30 in late March and with the club highly unlikely to fight for any silverware or European football, it stands him in no good stead to remain with the London outfit. We all know Frenchman Arsene Wenger, Arsenal's manager, has loved bringing in French talent.
