West Ham could be without summer signing Fabian Balbuena for an extended period, so should the Hammers make a loan move for Gary Cahill?
According to reports, Balbuena has suffered a setback in his recovery from the knee injury that kept him out of the games against Southampton, Burnley and Brighton.
While the extend of his setback won’t be clear until Manuel Pellegrini’s press conference on Thursday, fans are already worrying about the prospect of Angelo Ogbonna getting an extended run in the side.

Issa Diop has been superb this season, but he has been helped massively by the commanding presence and leadership of Balbuena, something Ogbonna simply doesn’t offer.
One man who could offer exactly that though is Cahill, who is expected to leave Chelsea this month.
According to The Mirror, Chelsea are already lining up replacements for the 33 year-old, who has played just 21 minutes of Premier League action this season.
He may not be the defender he once was, but the 61-cap Englishman will be a huge help to Diop until Balbuena returns.
So, West Ham fans, would you back a loan move for Cahill? Let us know by voting in the poll below…
