West Ham are close to securing free agent Lassana Diarra on a deal that will keep the former Real Madrid player at Upton Park until the end of the season.
Diarra is currently training with West Ham and a deal is expected to be concluded imminently according to Sam Allardyce.
“The deal is very close to being finalised. Once fit he will be a good addition. I hope, with a good few days’ training, he will be close in seven to 10 days – if he finally signs the contract,” said our manager.
