West Ham fear Ashton may miss bulk of campaign

West Ham striker Dean Ashton could be missing for much of the season with his ankle injury.

The News of the World says Ashton, 24, undergoes surgery this week for an exploratory operation on his left ankle.

The official line is the striker should be back in action within four weeks but the Hammers fear it could be months before he is back.
