West Ham United fan Jimmy Bullard has described Patrice Evra as a "psycho" in his column with gambling outlet BetBright after the Hammers completed the free agent signing of the experienced left-back.

Evra, 36, has moved to the London Stadium on a free transfer after his contract with French giants Marseille expired back in November following an altercation with a fan that saw the Frenchman lash out.

He was sent off before the Europa League clash against Vitoria even began, before being sacked by his club. Now, he has found a new home in the London Stadium and has put pen to paper on a six-month deal with David Moyes' side.

Bullard believes the signing of Evra is a poor one, as the 81-time France international's "legs have absolutely gone" and stated that the Hammers do not need another ageing player with Mark Noble and Pablo Zabaleta already in the side.

"From a West Ham fan’s point of view, Evra is an unbelievable name to have at the club – it’s just five years too late," Bullard said. "Two foots a fan who gives him a bit of stick. Absolutely classic – what a psycho. 

"I’d rather see some youth and fresh legs in there. We’ve already got Zabaleta and Noble whose legs aren’t getting any quicker.

"There’s no way Guardiola would play full-backs without legs and then you’ve got West Ham with two hand-me-down full backs in Evra and Zabaleta – you’re kidding me. Legs have absolutely gone."

Evra has been drafted in as Moyes' third signing, following the January recruits of Inter Milan's Joao Mario on loan as well as the permanent signing of Jordan Hugill from Preston North End.

He could make his debut on Saturday afternoon as the Hammers face Watford in the Premier League at the London Stadium, as they look to increase the three-point gap separating them from the relegation zone.
