West Ham United have confirmed the signing of former Arsenal and Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri.
Nasri spent four years with Olympique Marseille and the same amount of time at Arsenal, before joining Manchester City in 2011. He played a total of 171 games and scored 26 goals, and won the Premier League both in 2011/12 and 2013/14 with the current title holders. Following a loan spell at Sevilla and five games for Turkish side Antalyaspor, the 31-year-old was found guilty of using illegal substances and banned from football activities by UEFA.
With the ban set to expire with the arrival of 2019, Nasri has been training with the Hammers recently, hoping to prove his fitness to his former boss at City, Manuel Pellegrini, now in charge at West Ham. And it seems his endeavor has been successful, with the East London club offering him a short-term contract which he has now signed. It will keep him at the London Stadium for the rest of 2018/19, with an option to be extended in the summer.
