West Ham United handed Kurt Zouma injury boost

West Ham United have been handed a huge injury boost concerning Kurt Zouma.

What’s the latest?

That’s according to a claim made by Claret & Hugh, with the club insiders stating that the 27-year-old centre-back – who suffered a hamstring tendon injury in West Ham’s 3-2 win over Chelsea towards the beginning of the month – is already back in training at Rush Green, and could even make a return to first-team action at the end of January.

In their post, Claret & Hugh said: “Kurt Zouma is also reported to be back on [the] grass and current estimates are that the big summer signing could be involved again by the end of January. The player decided against having surgery and it seems it was a good decision with our source saying he is making much quicker than expected progress.”

Moyes will be buzzing

Considering just how impressive Zouma has been since his £29.8m move from Chelsea this summer, the news that the 27-year-old could make a return to action as soon as January will undoubtedly have left David Moyes buzzing.

Indeed, over his 11 Premier League appearances this season, the £28.8m-rated defender has helped his side keep two clean sheets and has scored one goal, as well as making an average of 1.2 interceptions, 0.6 tackles, 5.2 clearances and winning 60% of his duels per game.

These returns have seen the £120k-per-week man average a SofaScore match rating of 6.91, ranking him as the Hammers’ joint 10th-best player in the league.

Furthermore, West Ham have won just one of the six fixtures they have played since the France international picked up his injury, drawing one and losing the other four games.

As such, it is clear to see that Moyes’ side are desperately missing the 27-year-old in the heart of their defence, particularly with fellow centre-back Angelo Ogbonna also looking to be ruled out for the rest of the season with an anterior cruciate ligament injury of his own, meaning that the latest update concerning Zouma’s ahead of schedule return is sure to come as fantastic news for all involved with the club.
