Tristan: Handed Hammers chance
West Ham have handed a trial to Spanish striker Diego Tristan, skysports.com understands.
Tristan is looking for a new club after leaving Livorno at the end of last season.
The 32 year-old has been linked with a move to England in the past and he is now hoping to impress new West Ham boss Gianfranco Zola.
Zola is believed to be keen to bolster his attacking options after losing star striker Dean Ashton until the New Year through injury.
Tristan has a wealth of experience having won 15 caps for Spain and played in the UEFA Champions League with Deportivo La Coruna.
The skilful forward is keen to get his career back on track and is determined to try his luck in England.
Zola will cast an eye over Tristan in training before deciding whether or not to pursue his interest in the player.
