West Ham are interested in signing free agent Patrice Evra, according to Sky sources
The former Manchester United left-back was sacked by Marseille earlier this season and banned for European club games by UEFA following an altercation with a supporter.
The former France captain was sent off before Marseille’s Europa League defeat against Vitoria on November 2 last year, after lashing out at a supporter who Evra claimed was abusing him.
UEFA charged the 36-year-old under article 15 of their disciplinary regulations, which deals with the misconduct of players, banning him from their club competitions until June 2018.
Since he was dismissed by Marseille, Evra has posted regular social media updates of himself training to keep up his fitness, as well as spending time in the Middle East.
Evra had joined Marseille in January last year, also on a free transfer, signing an 18-month contract after ending a two-and-a-half-year stint at Juventus.
With Manchester United, the defender made 379 appearances and scored three goals in nine seasons in which he won five Premier League titles, the 2009 Champions League, three League Cups, five Community Shields and the FIFA Club World Cup.
