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.

"I mean, 60,000 people every game at home. We play in the Olympic Stadium.

“Coming back to the most competitive league in the world, with a team full of ambition with a manager that I know. It’s the best job in the world, and I’m really excited about it”

West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini managed Nasri at Manchester City, with the pair helping the club to a Premier League title.

Pellegrini added: "He is a player I obviously know well from our time together at Manchester City and I am happy to be working with him again.

"He has been working very hard here in recent weeks to build up his fitness and condition after a long period without playing, and he is now very determined to return to his best."

His contract was terminated by mutual consent with Turkish club Antalyaspor in January, and he has been training with West Ham in a bid to prove his fitness.

West Ham’s board agreed to a personal plea from first team boss Manuel Pellegrini to give Nasri a chance.

And he could now could make his first appearance for the club against Birmingham in the FA Cup on January 5.
