Belgian side Anderlecht have confirmed the signing of former Arsenal, Manchester City and France midfielder Samir Nasri, reuniting him with his former City team-mate Vincent Kompany.

The 32-year-old hasn’t played since leaving West Ham at the end of last season, six months after signing a short-term deal with the Hammers in January.

He arrived at the London Stadium just as he completed an 18-month ban from football for doping offences, having tested positive for a banned substance in 2016 that he claimed had administered unknowingly.

Anderlecht’s sporting director Michael Verschueren said of Kompany’s appointment: “With Vincent’s return we have achieved something that everyone thought was impossible. Vincent is the child of the house and the person we need to give a new impulse to the club and to use for RSCA 2.0.”
