Hitzlsperger set for West Ham debut in February
One of West Ham United's summer signings could finally make his debut for the club in February.
But he says that he is getting closer to a return and could be back in the Premier League fray come next year.
"There's not a lot you can do after this kind of surgery," said the 28-year old.
"Now the healing process is going well and I'm quite optimistic I'll be able to play in February."
