Patrice Evra still has a fine engine in him to get and down the pitch and deliver quality crosses, in addition to that Evra has the experience of playing in high-pressure situations which West Ham find themselves in with the Hammers still in a relegation battle.

Evra received a ban for the incident, which means he can not play in any UEFA tournaments.

The Frenchman also began his professional career in Italy with lower-League sides Marsala and Monza.

David Moyes, clearly a fan of Evra from his own ill-fated stint at Manchester United in 2013/14, will view him as a positive influence around the dressing room, as West Ham prepare themselves for a battle against the drop.

"They might be 26 or 27, they might be 23, but they won't be 32". They recently lost left-back Arthur Masuaku to a five-game ban for spitting during a game against Huddersfield.

West Ham now have a number of players sidelined through injury, while left-sided player Arthir Masuaku is unavailable until the middle of March through suspension.

Evra saw his contract with Marseille terminated by mutual consent in November following the French defender's seven-month ban from UEFA competitions.
