West Ham unveil Samir Nasri after completion of UEFA doping ban

West Ham unveiled new arrival Samir Nasri on Monday. He is available to begin playing on Jan. 1, 2019.
Samir Nasri was unveiled by West Ham on Monday. He is available to begin playing with the club on Jan. 1, 2019.

West Ham have signed free agent Samir Nasri until the end of the 2018-19 campaign with the French midfielder having completed an 18-month doping ban, the Premier League side said on Monday.

The former Arsenal and Manchester City midfielder had been training with the Hammers since last month and is free to resume playing from Jan. 1.

"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," Nasri told West Ham's website.

"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 have the option to extend the 31-year-old's deal by a year, the club added.

Nasri's original six-month ban for a drip treatment that violated World Anti-Doping Agency rules was increased to 18 months in August after an appeal by UEFA's ethics and disciplinary inspector.

Nasri played for Arsenal between 2008-2011 and joined City for a spell that included two league titles and a League Cup before he fell out of favour following the arrival of manager Pep Guardiola.

The former France international joined Spanish side Sevilla on a season-long loan in 2016 before sealing a permanent switch to Turkish side Antalyaspor, who he left in January by mutual consent.
