Marseille star Dimitri Payet insisted he was happy at the Ligue 1 club after enjoying a fine season.

Payet, 33, helped Marseille finish second in the table – their best league campaign since 2012-13 – as the season was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The midfielder scored nine goals and provided four assists in 22 Ligue 1 games this season.

Payet wants to stay at the club, telling Eurosport: "I feel very good in Marseille.

"You never know what may happen in football, but for there to be a story, you have to be two in this kind of situation. We have no plans to move."

Payet added: "Today, I am a very happy person on and off the pitch. It has been seen and I will do everything to keep it going next year."

A 38-time France international, Payet returned to Marseille in 2017 after starring for West Ham.
