(Reuters) - Manager Slaven Bilic has said that West Ham United will not sell Dimitri Payet despite the influential midfielder informing the Premier League club he does not wish to play for them anymore.

Payet, who is reportedly refusing to train with the squad, was made the club's best-paid player when he signed a five-year contract in February, earning 125,000 pounds a week, according to British media reports.
