Former Manchester United defender Patrice Evra has reportedly been linked with a return to the Premier League.

According to Sky Sports, the Frenchman is expected to join up with his former boss David Moyes at West Ham United later this week.

The pair worked alongside each other during the 2013/14 season at Old Trafford, but that did not last very long as the Scotsman was sacked by the Manchester club after a run of poor results.  

Reports suggest that Everton are also in for Evra, but the veteran left back would apparently prefer a move to London than Merseyside.

Evra, who is a free agent, was released by Ligue 1 side Marseille earlier this season following an altercation with a supporter before his side's Europa League match against Vitoria Guimaraes in November 2017 – he was subsequently banned by UEFA too, for seven months.

The 36-year-old's ban only relates to UEFA tournaments, though, and does not prevent the former Red Devil from playing in any domestic competition.

Evra is no stranger to the Premier League as he has made more than 270 appearances in the competition, scoring seven goals and assisting 33 further strikes along the way.
