WEST HAM have signed Samir Nasri on an £80,000-a-week deal until the end of the season.
The 31-year-old was slapped with the ban for breaking the World Anti-Doping Agency’s rules after receiving intravenous treatment in Los Angeles in December 2016.
But following a successful period of training at Rush Green, Nasri has joined the Hammers on an initial contract until the end of the 2018/19 season.
There is an option to extend his stay in east London.
Speaking to the club’s website, the 31-year-old said: “You choose a club and a project because of the ambition, and I think that West Ham has everything to be one of the biggest clubs in London, for sure.
