West Ham have confirmed the capture of former French international Samir Nasri on a short-term contract.

The former Arsenal and Manchester United star has, as previously stated in our earlier story, signed a short-term deal until the end of the season with the potential to extend his stay by a further two-years.

And he revealed that he can't wait to get back to playing competitively once again following a lengthy absence as a result of a worldwide ban.

"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 the club's website.

"I'm coming back to the most competitive league in the world, with a team full of ambition and a manager that I know. Itís the best job in the world, and Iím really excited about it."

And he was welcomed to West Ham by manager Manuel Pellegrini, who is working with the former French international for a second time following their spell together at Manchester City. "I am very pleased to welcome Samir to West Ham United," he said.

"He is a player I 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.

ďSamir will give us another dimension in our attacking play. He is a very technical player, with excellent quality on the ball, and the ability to create big moments in important matches.

"He already has very good experience of the Premier League and we hope that he will have a positive impact on the team between now and the end of the season."
