West Ham midfielder Diarra thrilled with "amazingly quick" knee recovery
Diarra was expected to play again this season, but is already in action for the Hammers' development squad.
He wrote for whufc.com: "I am happy to now be doing my job, playing football, and my recovery has been amazingly quick. I am surprised, like everybody, but we've taken our time and worked hard together and my knee is steady and I can play.
"I played 90 minutes in the game on Tuesday against Gillingham and I think this was my last test. Now, I think I am available for the first team and hopefully I will train hard to have a chance to play with West Ham United.
"I am not feeling 100 per cent just yet, but my knee is feeling stable and stronger. With every training session I will get better and I am happy to be playing because it was eight hard weeks."
