West Ham coach Nolan convinced Hazard will rethink retirement: We'll take him!

West Ham assistant coach Kevin Nolan can see Eden Hazard rethinking his retirement decision.

The former Chelsea and Real Madrid attacker announced this week he was hanging up his boots at the age of 32.

But Nolan told talkSPORT Drive: "I'd have the Hazard of Chelsea at West Ham, yeah.

"I'm sure if he wanted to come and trial we'd, I mean, I'd certainly be willing to. I don't know about the gaffer [David Moyes]. But I'd certainly want to trial him!"

The 41-year-old continued: "Some of the best years in the Premier League, he's been part of and some of the best goals.

"It's sad that at 32 he's decided to bow out in all honesty because I believe someone of his calibre of play could play at the top level for plenty more years.

"I wouldn't be surprised if we got a little bit of a reverse on that in the next six months to a year.

"I just think at 32, he's just put out that he's retired. There's been so many times, I remember when [Paul] Scholes done it.

"Then he got a phone call from Sir Alex [Ferguson] and he was like 'oh yeah, I will come back'.

"I just think something like that could happen with Hazard because someone is probably willing to give him the opportunity to say 'go on, come in and play for us for six months'."
