Former West Ham midfielder Morgan Amalfitano has joined Nigeria’s Vincent Enyeama at French outfit Lille on a free transfer on a two-and-a-half year deal.

The midfielder spent 13 months at Upton Park before leaving in October after falling out with manager Slaven Bilic.

The 30-year-old also spent the 2013-14 season on loan at West Brom when he was at Marseille.

Lille are 11th in the Ligue 1 table with 24 points from 19 games, 27 points behind runaway leaders Paris St-Germain.

Amalfitano is in line to make his debut for his new club at home to fifth-placed Nice on Sunday.

He joined West Ham from Marseille in September 2014 and scored three times in 24 Premier League appearances.
