The West Ham fans in the Transfer Tavern are feeling pretty good at the moment. Their side is doing well in the Premier League, with David Moyes really working his magic at present.
It seems as though there will be more to smile about over the coming weeks, too, owing to a recent update from Sam Byram, who is currently out with an injury. Speaking to the official West Ham website, Byram has revealed that he is closing in on a first-team return.
He said: “I’m over the worst of it [the injury] now. I’m back outside running, and I’ve just started integrating the footballs as well. It’s not going to be long before I’m back training with the lads and helping out”.
The defender is still some way off returning to the pitch, but with a full training return clearly on the horizon, his return will certainly be coming relatively soon. At 24-years-old, he’ll no doubt be keen to get back to action as soon as possible.
Byram’s return couldn’t come sooner for West Ham. They don’t have much depth on the right-hand side of the defence, and with games coming thick and fast between now and the end of the season, he’s sure to have a role to play under David Moyes.
Byram has often had to settle for a bit-part role at West Ham, and he’ll be hoping that that can change when he returns.
He’ll certainly get minutes this season, and it will be up to him to impress.
For West Ham, though, his return is a huge boost, given their lack of depth in defence.
