Samir Nasri to have medical at Premier League club

Samir Nasri worked with Manuel Pellegrini for three years at Manchester City

Samir Nasri is poised to be given a controversial route back into the Premier League by West Ham.

Nasri, 31, has been without a club since January past year, when he saw his contrcat with Turkish Super Lig side Antalyaspor mutually terminated after breaking a violation of the World Anti-Doping Code and Uefa's doping regulations after intravenously receiving 500ml of sterile water containing nutrients while on holiday in Los Angeles in December 2016.

Reports have suggested that the Hammers hold an interest in Nasri, who is available on a free transfer with his doping ban due to end at the end of 2018.

Nasri will sign a six-month deal until the end of the season with the east London club, which is to contain the option of an additional year thereafter.

He is able to start playing again at the beginning of January but was free to train with a side from the beginning of November.

More heavy rain for Tuesday
Wednesday night , showers will increase over eastern portions of the area as lows drop down into the middle to lower 30's. SATURDAY/SUNDAY: Saturday will start off with clear skies, allowing highs to top out in the upper 50's.

Nasri was given a six-month ban by UEFA over the intravenous treatment in February before it was extended to 18 months in August, with the suspension backdated to July 1, 2017.

The former Manchester City and Arsenal player won the Premier League twice at the Etihad before leaving to play overseas.

It would be a surprising move for most clubs, but West Ham's pursuit of Samir Nasri has a very familiar feel to it.

The former Manchester City midfielder is set to reunite with Manuel Pellegrini, now in charge of West Ham, whom he played for at City.
