Sources close to Mark Noble understand that Paolo Di Canio has provisionally agreed to take part in the captain’s testimonial at Easter.
Twenty-eight-year old Noble, who joined West Ham as a 13-year-old, and is now approaching 350 first-team appearances is understood to be approaching Teddy Sheringham, Bobby Zamora and Carlos Tevez amongst other former Hammers about their availability.
And a source close to him told ClaretandHugh exclusively that they understood PDC would be turning out unless there were “unforseen circumstances.”
Di Canio previously appeared for Tony Carr’s XI for his testimonial back in 2010.
The long-serving club captain will be honoured with a match between the current West Ham first team against a West Ham United All-Stars squad, with all funds raised being donated to charity.
The fixture, which will take place at the Boleyn Ground on Easter Monday 28th March 2016 at 2pm. home. Noble told WHUFC.com “I am hugely honoured and grateful that the Board have awarded me a Testimonial match at the Boleyn Ground, This is where I come from and this is my Football Club, so I can think of nothing better than having my Testimonial at the stadium where I have laughed, cheered and cried, both as a fan and as a player.”
