West Ham United forward Andre Dede Ayew is said to make an early return from injury than earlier scheduled.
Ayew sustained a hamstring injury during his debut for West Ham in the Premier League game against Chelsea in August. He lasted just 35 minutes in the game which saw his side losing 2-1 at the Stamford Bridge.
Speaking to West Ham’s official website, David Sullivan, owner of the club believes the progress of Ayew in his rehab could see him back from the sidelines before his set date.
“Our club record signing Andre Ayew is also a great signing” he said.
“We are just unlucky with his injury.
“He is a player that is never usually injured, but he is progressing very well.
“We hope he might be back sometime in October or early November, a lot earlier than was initially anticipated,” Sullivan added.
The Black Stars deputy captain’s injury was said to keep him on the sidelines until December after initial medical examinations. His early return to fitness will be a massive addition to the Hammers squad and positive news for Stars’ Russia 2018 World Cup qualifier against Egypt on November 7.
This is Andre Ayew’s second season in England after excelling with 12 goals for Swansea last season in the Premier League.
