West Ham hope Luis Boa Morte's return to fitness will help them in their battle to stay in the Premier League, reports BBC Sport.

The 32 year old continued his comeback from a knee injury by completing his first full 90 minutes in 11 months for the reserves against Spurs on Tuesday.

The winger had not played a full match since West Ham's win over Middlesbrough on the final day of last season.

"Hopefully, Luis will be able to play his part before the end of the season," said Hammers boss Gianfranco Zola.

"It is nice to have him back around the squad. He is important player for his enthusiasm and his energy. We have missed him on and off the pitch."
