​West Ham assistant McKinlay confirms Kehrer could face Viborg

West Ham assistant manager Billy McKinlay has claimed that new signing Thilo Kehrer may even play for the club on Thursday in the Europa Conference League play-offs.

The Hammers are set to take on Viborg as they bid to reach the group stages of the competition.

They have secured the German international Kehrer from Paris Saint-Germain on a four-year contract.

"We'll see how he settles in, get a bit of feedback from him and see how he feels over the next 24 hours," said McKinlay at Wednesday's pre-match press conference.

"He trained a little bit with us this morning."

On where Kehrer would play, he added: "He's played predominately for the national team at left-back and centre-back for PSG last season, so we feel we have a really good acquisition for the squad.

"He will be able to add to us in a number of areas."
