Premier League outfit West Ham are expected to complete the signing of free agent Patrice Evra on Wednesday, according to reports.
West Ham manager David Moyes knows Evra well, the pair having been together at Manchester United during the 2013/14 season.
Apparently, Everton are also interested in the left-back but he is believed to favour a move to London.
Evra, who spent eight years with United in total, was sacked by Marseille earlier this season and banned 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.
The ban only relates to UEFA tournaments and does not prevent Evra from playing in any domestic competitions, including the Premier League.
