Mark Noble has revealed Dimtri Payet has not spoken to him in "weeks" as the wantaway star's relationships at West Ham collapsed.
West Ham manager Slaven Bilic and Gold's co-chairman David Sullivan have made it clear the east London club will not sell their top player.
"Obviously I have been here all my life so I find it hard to realise that someone wouldn't want to play for the club".
"Payet is a great player so you are losing quality, but the team showed it is about the team and not individuals. This is a great example for that", said Bilic.
"To put all that behind us and work as a team has been fantastic".
Michail Antonio recorded three assists for West Ham, who snapped a three-game skid over all competitions and rebounded from last week's 5-0 loss to Manchester City in the FA Cup. "I didn't think we would collapse like we did so it was a bit of a shock at the end looking at the scoreboard".

Antonio shanked an effort wide before a goal-of-the-season contender from Carroll settled matters in the 79 minute, the big man landing a Hugo Sanchez-style overhead kick at the far post after Antonio, to the left of goal, was given far too much time to pick him out. "I'm still finding out about the players here and they are making statements to me by the fact results are not good enough".
The third came when Antonio put Lanzini away, and he cheekily chipped the gaolkeeper.
Only goal difference keeps the Eagles out of the relegation zone with new manager Sam Allardyce still awaiting his first victory in charge. I don't know. That is nothing to do with me.
West Ham carved out the first chance in this London derby as the risky Andy Carroll struck a vicious volley from Mark Noble's cross just over. Booked: Noble, Carroll, Byram.
