West Ham are confident Wayne Bridge will be registered in time to face Arsenal on Saturday.
And it could prove a baptism of fire for Bridge against England winger Theo Walcott.
Hours before last night’s Carling Cup clash, the Hammers were busy rushing the Manchester City defender through a medical prior to a loan deal for the rest of the campaign being sealed.
Bridge, 30, has made just one Premier League start this season.
West Ham boss Avram Grant is desperate for options at left-back with Herita Ilunga injured, while City manager Roberto Mancini confirmed: “Bridge is in London for a medical.”
