Manchester United legend Patrice Evra has been signed by West Ham for free. The Former United defender became a free agent three months ago when he was released by Ligue 1 side Olympique Marseille in November.
West Ham United who are currently enjoying a turnaround in the League since the hiring of David Moyes last year, confirmed the signing of the veteran player on their official page.
In one of their reports on Wednesday, Sky Sports reports that the former France defender has joined the Hammers on a free transfer and he is expected to be in the team for two seasons.
His move to the London stadium will reunite him with Scottish manager David Moyes who was his former manager during their time at Old Trafford in the 2013-14 season.
The Frenchman has had a successful career since he broke into the limelight in 1997 while playing for former Ligue Champions Paris Saint-German. He had a spell with numerous clubs including
Marsala Calcio, Calcio Monza, Nice, Monaco, Manchester United and
Juventus before making this move to the London stadium.
This move could be the player’s last transfer before he put an end to his career according to report.
Evra became popular during his time at Manchester United under Alex Ferguson’s watch. He made 379 appearances for the Red Devils where he spent eight years before he moved to Juventus in the 2014-15 season. Moyes will hope that the player’s experience helps the team in their mission to finish above the second half in the Premier League table.
