Quiz! Can you name the clubs from which West Ham's first-team players were signed?

Manuel Pellegrini, Samir Nasri

Manuel Pellegrini left Manchester City as dignified as he could in the circumstances.

Famously, the Chilean was told on February 1 of the 2015/16 season that his job would be taken by that bloke Pep once a (frankly, rubbish) season was over, so continued quietly to the end before being led morosely to the abattoir.

But there are no hard feelings for the 65-year-old, who wants to do his old club a favour in their frantic title battle with Liverpool on Monday night. “If we can give a hand to Manchester City, it's not our problem, but of course I am a fan of Manchester City also,” he twinkled.

For today’s quiz, then, we’re after something a little different. We’re testing you about your knowledge around West Ham’s first-team squad – namely, the clubs from which each member was signed.

Fancy it? You’ve got five minutes on the clock to name as many as you can, then tell us how you got on @FourFourTwo – you could make it onto our daily leaderboard.

Please note: By ‘member’, we mean anyone who’s made a first-team appearance this season, or could be reasonably described as a first-team player. Star denotes player joined on free transfer, so previous club applies.
