West Ham United head physiotherapist George Cooper has given an upbeat report on Kieron Dyer as the midfielder recovers from his double leg fracture.

Cooper told whufc.com: "Kieron met with his surgeon yesterday and it went really well as he said that Kieron was right on schedule with his rehabilitation. He had an X-ray which showed the bone is growing round the fracture at the rate we would expect it to.

"He was given the all-clear to continue using two crutches and to put the injured leg down, gradually introducing weight over the next month," he added. "If that goes well the process will then be to use one crutch, thus introducing more weight and then, after that, walking with no crutches at all."
