West Ham sign Evra on deal until the end of the season

The Frenchman, who has 81 caps for his nation, was a free agent after Marseille terminated his contract in wake of him performing a Cantona-like kick on one of his own fans before a Europa League game in November.

Everton are also thought to be interested in signing the former Man Utd star, but the player is believed to prefer a move to London.

According to Paul Joyce, Northern Football Correspondent for The Times, the French full-back will join West Ham United on a free transfer, where he will be reunited with former United manager, David Moyes.

As is the trend these days, West Ham unveiled their new signing in a video posted on social media, to the tune of club anthem "Forever Blowing Bubbles".

The 36-year-old left back returns to the Premier League after ending a trophy-laden, eight-year spell at Manchester United in 2014.

He spoke with the club's website and said: "It happened really fast".

"We have to take a look at the age of the players we're signing".

"They might be 26 or 27, they might be 23, but they won't be 32".

Their current defence includes Jose Fonte (34) and Zabaleta (33), as well as Winston Reid and Angelo Ogbonna (both months way from hitting 30) and James Collins (34) being used regularly in recent weeks.

West Ham now have a number of players sidelined through injury, while left-sided player Arthir Masuaku is unavailable until the middle of March through suspension.

Most of those injuries are in midfield and attack, although left wing-back Arthur Masuaku is still suspended for the next four matches for spitting in the recent FA Cup defeat at Wigan.
