West Ham's move for Samir Nasri in doubt over fitness concerns

Samir Nasri

The story suggests that Nasri, who played under Pellegrini at Manchester City, is undergoing a medical prior to signing a short-term contract with the Hammers.

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.

A month later he was banned, initially for six months, for using an intravenous drip treatment that contravened World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada) rules, leading to a Spanish Anti-Doping investigation.

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

Kellyanne Conway, a counsellor to Mr Trump, defended Mr Whitaker's oversight of the probe when asked about it on This Week. Seconds later, Sessions pulls out a smaller mug that says, "JK it is about hatred". "It's illegal.

It was alleged Nasri received 500 millilitres of hydration in the form of sterile water containing micronutrients while on holiday in the U.S. during a time when he was playing for Sevilla, on load from Manchester City.

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.

They also rank 13th for chances created across the division as well as 11th for goals scored which perhaps highlights why Pellegrini is interested in recruiting an attack-minded midfield player of Nasri's ilk.

Samir Nasri is in line to rejoin Manuel Pellegrini at West Ham when his doping suspension ends, the London Evening Standard reported on Monday. Phillips, who coaches West Ham Under-18s, has been given a final warning over his conduct.
