But from January 1, Nasri will be free to play against and will be charged with helping West Ham cement a place in the Premier League top half. At Manchester City, we were the fastest team to 100 goals.

West Ham sit 11th in the Premier League having recovered from four straight defeats at the start of Pellegrini's reign.

West Ham have signed former Arsenal and Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri - on the day he completes a doping ban.

The Hammers today announced the signing of the 31-year-old Nasri, who is available to play from tomorrow after an 18-month ban for receiving an intravenous treatment at a Los Angeles clinic in breach of the World Anti-Doping Agency's rules. "We play now at home to Brighton which will be also hard but I hope we will see the team we saw [in] all the other games". When you're a player, you want the manager to know your quality and want you because he's the one that is going to be playing the team, and knows your quality.
