West Ham have completed their first signing of the transfer window, bringing Samir Nasri in on a free transfer. The former Arsenal player has joined West Ham on a free transfer until the end of the season after finishing a doping ban, the Premier League club have announced. Nasri was given an 18-month backdated ban after receiving a drip treatment at a Los Angeles clinic in 2016 while on loan at Sevilla, and is free to play again from January 1. Nasri who is relishing the opportunity to return to England after a short spell with Antalyaspor in Turkey told the club’s official website; “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 at every game at home. We play in the Olympic Stadium. The training ground is there and you have owners who want to invest and have a good team. Everything is there to be doing great things. “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.” Nasri had been training with the club since November and a deal had long been mooted, as the Frenchman looks to kick-start his career after a difficult spell.
