West Ham are set to sign former Manchester United left-back Patrice Evra on a deal until the end of the season.
The 36-year-old Frenchman has been without a club since he left Marseille by mutual consent in November after a shocking incident in which he kicked one of the club’s fans before a Europa League match.
Evra was banned from UEFA competition for the rest of the season, but is able to play domestically for the Hammers.
He played for West Ham boss David Moyes when he managed Manchester United but quit Old Trafford for Juventus in 2014 before heading back to his homeland in January 2017.
Evra played 379 games for United between 2006 and 2014 and won nine major trophies, including five Premier League titles and the Champions League in 2008.
He made just nine appearances for Marseille this season, most recently back in October, before the incident prior to a European game against Vitoria Guimaraes on November 2.
