West Ham defender Winston Reid returns to full training

Winston Reid has returned to full training at West Ham United, per ClaretandHugh.

What’s the word?

The central defender has struggled with injury woes throughout the past two seasons.

He did not make a single appearance in 2018/19 due to a knee problem.

However, he is now back in training with the new season drawing ever closer.

Indeed, ClaretandHugh reports that the New Zealand international will rejoin the first-team this week following a spell of specialist training.

West Ham begin the season against Premier League champions Manchester City this weekend.

A major boost

A fit Reid will be an incredible boost to manager Manuel Pellegrini.

Indeed, the 31-year-old has made over 220 appearances for the club and has often captained the club too.

His last reasonably full season came in 2016/17, however, as he played 36 times in all competitions.

Having him back and able to compete with Issa Diop and Fabian Balbuena for a starting spot gives Pellegrini depth and a welcome selection headache.

Reid is a fine defender, excellent in the air and also good on the ground and could play a key role in his side’s season.

Fans will surely be delighted to see him back.
