Former West Ham defender Patrice Evra is back in East London.
Football.London report that Evra is training with West Ham. He is currently a free agent and is keeping his fitness up.
But, thankfully for West Ham fans, Manuel Pellegrini is not interested in re-signing the left-back.
The 37-year-old played in a behind-closed-doors friendly against QPR, which ended in a 3-1 defeat for the Irons.
Evra at West Ham
Evra joined West Ham on a free transfer last season, teaming up with his former Manchester United boss David Moyes.
The ex-France international was past his best and West Ham often leaked plenty of goals. Evra started three games and West Ham conceded four goals in all of those outings.
It is plausible that West Ham may have moved for Evra. Pellegrini is clearly not happy with his left-back options.
Aaron Cresswell seems to be going backwards and Arthur Masuaku has struggled defensively.
But Evra is really not the answer. This is what West Ham fans thought of this news.
