After being released by West Ham at the end of last season, Patrice Evra is training with the club once more, although he will not be offered a new contract at the London Stadium. 

The veteran defender joined the Hammers in February on a short-term deal under David Moyes that lasted until the end of the 2017/18 season, making five Premier League appearances, three of which came in 4-1 defeats. 


Now still without a club, report that the 37-year-old is training with the London side in a bid to maintain fitness levels as he looks for a new club, but won't be offered a new deal at West Ham as Manuel Pellegrini isn't interested in signing another full back.

Evra did play a behind-closed-doors friendly for West Ham recently while the international fixtures take place, lining up alongside Angelo Ogbonna at centre back, but couldn't help his side avoid defeat as they lost 3-1 to Queens Park Rangers. 

Despite the left back entering the twilight of his career, Evra certainly offers a wealth of experience for any side that offers him a deal, having made 379 appearances for Manchester United alone, winning five Premier League titles and the Champions League during his eight and a half years at Old Trafford. 

Another former Hammers in James Collins is also training with the club at Rush Green following his release, although like Evra he will not be offered a deal to return to the club. 


West Ham currently sit 15th in the table following a summer of heavy investment, with two wins, one draw and five defeats from their opening eight league games.
