Former Paris Saint-Germain attacker Nene was today expected to undergo a medical at West Ham prior to signing an initial short-term deal to the end of the season, according to the Evening Standard.

West Ham turned to the 33-year-old Brazilian following a knee injury sustained by Andy Carroll who will be out for the rest of the season.

Nene, who can either play up front or as a wide midfield player, is a free agent after leaving Qatari club Al Gharafa in January.

He scored 36 goals in 79 games for Paris Saint-Germain from 2010-13 and 20 in 43 with Al Ghafra.

Andy Carroll has been ruled out for the rest of the season

West Ham are keen to satisfy themselves on the player’s fitness however, before any deal is settled.
