Zarate joins up with the Hammers in Cork

Mauro Zarate has joined up with the West Ham United squad in Ireland as they prepare for Thursday's visit of FC Lusitans.

Zarate spent the second half of last season on loan at Queens Park Rangers but has now returned to the Hammers and will be looking to make his mark in the UEFA Europa League qualifying campaign.

Day four in Cork started with a gym session for all players, as the squad worked on their strength and conditioning ahead of the big kick-off.

They will return to the training pitch this afternoon as they continue to sharpen their skills.

Tickets for Thursday's game against FC Lusitans are now on General Sale, priced at just £10 adults and £5 Under-16s. Buy now by clicking here.
