Patrice Evra is reported to have completed a medical on his move to West Ham and has signed for the London club on a free transfer.
Everton are also interested in the former French captain, but he is set to move to the Hammers until the end of the season, preferring a move to London.
The left-back played under West Ham manager David Moyes when he was at Manchester United, where he played a total of eight years before a move to Serie A with Juventus, then French club Marseilles.
The 36-year-old is banned from playing in UEFA tournaments until June after he was sacked by Marseilles for kicking a supporter Evra claimed was shouting offensive abuse before Marseille’s Europa League defeat against Vitoria last November.
But the French footballer can still play in Premier League matches. The Old Trafford Legend helped Man United win five Premiership titles, the 2008 Champions League, three League Cups, five Community Shields and the FIFA Club World Cup.
