Dyer hoping to play for West Ham this term

Kieron Dyer is still hoping to play again for West Ham this season as he continues his recovery from a double leg fracture.

Now, after undergoing surgery to help heal the break, the midfielder is well on the road to recovery and has his sights set on forcing his way into Alan Curbishley's plans before the end of the current campaign.

"I have progressed a lot," he told West Ham's official website.

"I am running very comfortably. I am at three-quarter pace and I am ready to push on again. It is ahead of schedule and going really well.

"My leg got pinned and so I had a very simple operation where they removed the screws because they cause you a bit of discomfort. I had that last week, five days rest and I can crack on again.

"I feel fine, obviously when you run you are getting the shin used to the constant pounding. I had a bit of discomfort in the early stages but now I am fine and feeling extremely comfortable. I am ready to push in to sprinting soon.

"If you set timescales, I think the physios have a nervous breakdown, but I definitely believe that I will figure before the end of the season."
