The Express understands that former West Ham United captain Kevin Nolan has rejected a move to an unknown top division French club to stay in London.
The thirty-three year old left Upton Park by mutual consent last month and has been training with League Two promotion hopefuls Leyton Orient to maintain his fitness.
Bournemouth and Sunderland have been linked with a move for the former Bolton Wanderers and Newcastle United man, who’s next appearance in the Premier League, should he make one, would be his four hundredth in the division.
During his time with West Ham, Nolan played one hundred and fifty-seven times in all competitions scoring thirty-one goals while he was part of the squad that won promotion to the top-flight via the play-offs in 2012.
He was named the Championship Player of the Season while at Newcastle while internationally he is yet to represent England at senior level but won two U21 caps between 2002 and 2004.
