West Ham's Dixon could be on the move to Colorado

A loan move for young West Ham striker Terry Dixon could be on the cards according to reports.

The club in question is MLS outfit Colorado Rapids who would benefit greatly from the 20-year old Republic of Ireland forward who began his professional career with Tottenham Hotspur in 2007.

But Dixon is intent on winning a place in Gianfranco Zola's Hammers first team after recovering from several injuries.

"It was frustrating because when they had a lot of strikers out, I was injured too and now they've brought in some more strikers. But I think if you're good enough, you're good enough and you'll come through anyway," he said.

"The physios and medical staff at West Ham have saved me. My knee only swells up now when I go on a flight. I ice it every day after training and it's fine.

"I've spoken to Zola a few times but without match fitness I can't show what I'm about. It's just glimpses at the moment. The manager has been encouraging but I've got to do it myself."
