Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera says his conscience remains clear after match-fixing allegations were reopened in Spain.

Real Zaragoza's 2-1 win against Levante on May 21, 2011 has been investigated by Spain's anti-corruption prosecutors' office over payments related to alleged match fixing.

Herrera played for Zaragoza at the time and may face trial after the case was reopened by a judge in Valencia.

The timescale remains unclear and the 28-year-old maintains his innocence, with his representative reissuing a statement first released in December 2014.

"I have never had and will never have anything to do with manipulating match results," Herrera said.

"If I am ever called to testify in any judicial hearing, I'll be happy to attend, as my conscience is totally clear.

"I love football and I believe in fair play, both on and off the pitch."

West Ham sign Evra on deal until the end of the season

West Ham have signed former Manchester United left-back Patrice Evra on a short-term contract.

The 36-year-old Frenchman arrives as a free agent, having been without a club since he left Marseille in November after kicking one of the club's fans before a Europa League match.

The incident saw Evra banned from UEFA competition for the rest of the season, but he will be able to play domestically for West Ham.

Hammers boss David Moyes, who managed Evra at Manchester United, needed to bolster a squad decimated by injuries to a host of key players.

Most of those injuries are in midfield and attack, although left wing-back Arthur Masuaku is still suspended for the next four matches for spitting in the recent FA Cup defeat at Wigan.

Evra told the club website: "I'm really happy to be a Hammer, to be back in the Premier League and I love this game.

"It's amazing to be back and I am thankful to West Ham for giving me the opportunity to do my job.

"When I wake up and know I am going to work hard, to have fun with my team-mates and give my best on the pitch, I want to say a massive thanks to West Ham, to the chairman, to the manager to all my team-mates, who have given me a nice welcome, my agent and my brother.

"I'm just happy to be here, it's really simple. You don't realise how lucky you are and just to wake up this morning and know I am going to train with my new team-mates made me smile!"

Evra, who won the Premier League five times with United and the Serie A title twice with Juventus, could make his Hammers debut against Watford on Saturday.

Pogba dropped for Man Utd match with Huddersfield

Paul Pogba has been dropped for Manchester United's home game with Huddersfield.

The France international midfielder was taken off during the midweek loss to Tottenham, and boss Jose Mourinho was questioned about an exchange the two had on the sidelines.

He played that down, but if Pogba is to join his team-mates in redeeming that Wembley defeat to Spurs, he will have to hope the nod from Mourinho comes.
