Evra Signs for West Ham United

Evra Signs for West Ham United

Yesterday, the press speculation, as reported by our good selves, suggested that West Ham United were set to sign the former Manchester United defender, Patrice Evra, on a short-term deal.

That proved to be exactly the case with it being announced, by the club, yesterday afternoon, Evra had put pen-to-paper on a deal that will see him spend the rest of the 2017 / 2018 season with West Ham United.

At 36-years-of-age and with no ties, the deal is ideal for both parties, with Evra getting back into the game after leaving Marseilles by mutual consent and West Ham getting in some experienced defensive cover at a time when the squad has been hit by injuries and suspension.

Evra, speaking to the media after signing his short-term deal was delighted to be back in the Premier League, remarking,

'It's amazing to be back and I am thankful to West Ham for giving me the opportunity to do my job.

'You don't realise how lucky you are. Just to wake up this morning and know I am going to train with my new team-mates made me smile.

'When you have to make a deal and money is not the issue, the deal could be done in five minutes. It was the fastest thing I have done in my life.'

The deal sees Evra re-united with David Moyes for whom he played for during his last few months at Old Trafford.

Evra has a wealth of experience and during his career he has played 379 games for Manchester United during which he won 9 major trophies.
