Le Havre chief Wanitez admits trying for Anderlecht signing Nasri

Le Havre chief Pierre Wanitez admits they tried to sign released West Ham midfielder Samir Nasri.

The French veteran's move to Anderlecht was confirmed on Friday.

Wanitez said, "He's a player Paul (Le Guen) appreciates. For the moment, only Paul talked with him.

"What is certain is that it would not have been a financial blow for him. I know he has received some very lucrative offers elsewhere (Dubai, Australia).

"The ball was left in his court."
