Patrice Evra has told West Ham's official website that he was aware of most of the Hammers squad before his arrival, and felt compelled to ask Mark Noble whether he was still running everywhere when he bumped into the captain for the first time after signing his contract at the London Stadium.

With David Moyes' men on the periphery of a relegation battle in the top flight, the manager will no doubt want the left-back to hit the ground running following his arrival. And what will undoubtedly help that is the new signing getting on with his teammates.

“I know them and I know Pablo Zabaleta, I know everyone! I came from a big family so, for me, sharing is something normal," he told the club's official website.

“I want to share my happiness and my work ethic. They know how professional I am. I am someone who likes to have fun but when it is time to work, I don’t like to laugh too much.

“They gave me a nice welcome but even if I don’t know them, for example I have played a lot times against Mark Noble, when he saw me he was happy and I really happy and was like ‘Are you still running everywhere? How long have you been here?’ and he said ’20 years!’ so it’s everyone!"

After five games without a win in all competitions, the Hammers will be hoping that they will be able to get back to winning ways when they take on Watford at the London Stadium on Saturday. And, if given the chance to make his debut, Evra will be targeting proving that he still has a lot to contribute before his career comes to an end.
