Marseille have had a third bid for Dimitri Payet turned down after they offered just £860,000 more, according to the Daily Mail.
West Ham are said to have found this third offer of less than £23m ‘an insult’; they value the French midfielder at £30m.
Marseille have now made three offers of £20m, £22m and £22.86m and are clearly trying to land Payet on the cheap.
West Ham are prepared to make Payet stay at the club (and train with the youth team) rather than give in to Marseille’s tactics.
He was signed for just £10.75m in the summer of 2015 and signed a new contract last year worth £125,000 a week.
