London: Former French defender Patrice Evra marked his return to English football by joining West Ham United on a short-term contract.

The former Manchester United star made 273 appearances for the English football giants from 2006 to 2014.

"West Ham United are pleased to confirm the signing of the vastly-experienced Patrice Evra on a short-term contract," the club announced.

"Evra, who joins the Hammers on a contract until the end of June, 2018, and will wear the No. 27 shirt, worked with Hammers manager David Moyes during his time at Old Trafford, and is looking forward to linking up with his old boss and returning to the Premier League."

Evra said: "I'm really happy to be a Hammer, to be back in the Premier League and I love this game!"

The Frenchman also revealed that he could not wait to sign for the club, once he was made aware of the opportunity to be reunited with David Moyes -- who was his coach at Manchester United.
