West Ham are set to field at least three triallists when they face Rot-Wei▀ Erfurt in tonight's pre-season friendly.
Bilel Mohsni, Colin Kazim-Richards and Dutch defender Michael Lamey are all in the squad to face the 3 Liga outfit at the Steigerwaldstadion this evening on the first leg of United's second pre-season European venture.
Mohsni, who has already featured for West Ham at Grays and Colchester and Kazim-Richards, who also featured at the Weston Homes Community Stadium last weekend will be joined by former PSV Eindhoven and Arminia Bielefeld centre half Lamey.
The 32-year-old, who played for Polish side Wisła Krakˇw last season has never featured for the Dutch national side but won four under-21 caps over a decade ago.
Tonight's opponents are a relatively new football club having been formed from the amalgamation of two former East German clubs, SC Turbine Erfurt and BSG Optima Erfurt in 1966. However their roots as a sports club can be traced back to the end of the 1800s.
Rot-Wei▀ Erfurt's home ground, the Steigerwaldstadion - which comes complete with a running track - was built in 1931 and has a capacity of just under 20,000. A healthy contingent of travelling Hammers are expected to attend this evening's fixture.
West Ham Utd: Henderson, Laney, O'Brien, Spence, Potts, Moshni, Moncur, Hall, Turgott, Maynard, Kazim-Richards.
Subs: Jaaskelainen, McCartney, Drvier, Demel, O'Neil, Noble, Taylor, Vaz Te, Baldock

''Don't think about Lamey, the worse defender in Wisla Cracow, altogether with Kew Jaliens, there are better and younger players to get ;)''
