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