Samir Nasri joins Kompany at Anderlecht

French midfielder Samir Nasri has been reunited with former Manchester City team-mate Vincent Kompany at Anderlecht.

The player who was released by Westham last month joins the Belgian giants after on a free transfer after Westham failed to renew the short deal he signed in January.

Nasri said on the club website: “I received a number of great offers, but in the end, I chose RSC Anderlecht with a great deal of conviction,' Nasri said on the club's official website.

“I absolutely want to help Vincent and the club to succeed in their set-up. Vincent Kompany was my team-mate at City between 2011 and 2017. I know him through and through and know which project he has in mind with Anderlecht.

“Together with him and the entire team I want to do everything to make this a success.”

Player Manager

Kompany moved quickly to bring the 32-year-old to his new club, having taken over as player-manager after leaving City this summer.

Nasri spent six years alongside Kompany in Manchester after joining from Arsenal for £27million in 2011. The pair won two Premier League titles and the 2014 League Cup together before Nasri departed for Sevilla in 2017.

The move gives Nasri a chance to kick-start his career after a doping ban and underwhelming spell in east London, where he made only six appearances in six months.
