West Ham will not be due a fee from Marseille for Dimitri Payet reaching or potentially winning the Europa League final because of a lack of clause in his contract.
Payet has clauses in his contract but Sportsmail has been told winning Europe’s second most prestigious competition is not among them.

West Ham got £25million when they sold Payet and he signed a four-and-a-half year deal, with the option of a further year.
Payet has scored 15 goals in one and a half seasons since leaving the Hammers.
He was seen as a minor fitness doubt for Wednesday’s game after sitting out Marseille’s 3-3 draw at Guingamp last week, but he trained on the eve of the final.
Speaking on Tuesday, Payet said: ‘I feel a lot better. Yes, I feel I can play tomorrow.
‘I’ve been feeling very good, especially since the beginning of 2018.
‘I haven’t changed anything except I have been injured less and when you have no injuries it’s must easier to play and feel better on the pitch.’
