Ex-Chelsea midfielder hoping for Zola reunion

West Ham United manager Gianfranco Zola has held talks with former Chelsea colleague Sam Dalla Bona about training with the Hammers.

The Italian midfielder was released by Napoli during the transfer window and the 27-year-old his hoping to secure a permanent deal at Upton Park after rejecting an offer to join Serie B side Triestina.

Dalla Bona, who graduated from Chelsea's youth team to make 55 appearances for the club between 1999 and 2002, left Stamford Bridge to join AC Milan but found his playing limited to four games in four years at the San Siro.

Now the former Italy U21 international is hoping the resume a career in the Premier League under fellow countryman Zola.

"I spoke with Zola and I asked him about the possibility of training with West Ham because free agents have until March to find a new club," Dalla Bona told Gazzetta dello Sport. "Zola told me he will ask the officials. I wait for an answer."

"At Napoli, I have found little playing time and, honestly, I still don't know the reasons why,'' he said.

"Despite playing well in my first year here and contributing to the team gaining promotion to Serie A, I have not been given the chance to prove my value. Obviously with (Napoli coach Eddy) Reja, there was no feeling.''
