West Hams fans quickly turned on the 29-year-old for the way he went about forcing through the transfer.
"I would like to make it clear that we have no financial need to sell our best players".
The French star has refused to play for the East End club and is demanding that the Hammers sell him back to his former club, Marseille, this month.
Marseille have signed Dimitri Payet from West Ham for a fee believed to be around £25 million.
"He will be presented during a press conference this Monday, January 30, 2017 at 2:30 p.m.at the Robert Louis-Dreyfus Center in the presence of OM President Jacques-Henri Eyraud and sports director Andoni Zubizarreta". "I have a great memory of the fans of the club".
Yes, Dimitri Payet has gotten his wish, leaving West Ham and the EPL and our TV screens for Marseille and Ligue 1 and fuzzy illegal online streams, and it is (selfishly) a sad day.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad apparently would not be considered as a partner in the fight against Dash. Russia's Defense Ministry also says six Russian long-ranger bombers struck ISIS positions in eastern Syria.
At his presentation on Monday, at which Marseille president Jacques-Henri Eyraud revealed Payet had accepted a "significant reduction" to his wages, the France worldwide referred to his revolt.
"If [the move] hadn't gone through I would have lived with it. Thanks to all the staff for doing what was needed". It came at a time when I missed France. I spoke to Slaven Bilic.
There likely isn't time to reinvest the funds from the sale in the club in this window, but West Ham could be a little more active during the summer with an extra £25 million in the bank.
In a video interview posted onto Marseille's official Twitter page, Payet said: "I'm happy, I'm relieved".
In total, Payet netted 18 goals in 66 appearances for West Ham.
Marseille could hand Payet his re-debut as soon as Tuesday night (31 January), when Rudi Garcia's side host Lyon in the last 32 of the Coupe de France.
