West Ham midfielder Diarra thrilled with "amazingly quick" knee recovery

West Ham United midfielder Alou Diarra admits his recovery from a knee injury has been "amazingly quick".

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."
