Tevez, Mascherano convinced Zarate about West Ham move

Two former West Ham United old-boys convinced Mauro Zarate about moving to the Boleyn Ground.

Zarate has agreed a three-year deal with West Ham as he leaves Argentina's Velez Sarsfield.

He revealed he spoke to compatriots and former Hammers Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano about making the switch.

"Yes a little bit. Now we will talk [with West Ham's owners] and maybe I will sign," he told Sky Sports News.
