McCartney, 32, who once cost £4.5million earlier in his career, has represented Northern Ireland 34 times, while Diarra has made 44 appearances for France.

The pair have missed a large portion of the season with injuries, but could play some part as they look to step up their comeback.

Hammers’ development squad are top of the Barclays U21 Premier League table following a 3-3 draw at Chelsea last Friday and are looking to use this match as preparation for the next league fixture aginst Leicester City.

Hatters have already beaten their Premier League counterparts in a similar friendly last month, when Matt Robinson scored in a 1-0 triumph.

Kick off is at 7pm with admission priced as £5 for adults, £2 concessions with season ticket holders free.
