West Ham United have roped in Samir Nasri for the remainder of the season.
The French playmaker has put pen to paper to a short term contract and the club also has the option to extend it beyond this season if the player does manage to impress.
Nasri had been training with the Hammers since November as he was serving an 18 months ban for receiving an intravenous treatment at a clinic in Los Angeles. The 31 year old was free to train with any club and can don any jersey from 1st January.
Nasri is eligible to face Brighton & Hove Albion in the next match and the player is all set to be reunited with his former manager Manuel Pellegrini at the London Stadium.
Nasri said, “You choose a club because of the ambition, and I think that West Ham has everything to be one of the biggest clubs in London, for sure.
“I mean, 60,000 people every game at home, we play in the Olympic Stadium. The training ground is there and you have owners who want to invest and have a good team. Everything is there to be doing great things.
“Coming back to the most competitive league in the world, with a team full of ambition with a manager that I know. It’s the best job in the world, and I’m really excited about it.”
