West Ham physio George Cooper expects Kieron Dyer to make a speedy recovery from his double leg fracture.
He told whufc.com: "The Club doctor and myself watched the surgery being carried out. Kieron had a pin and screws put in the leg and already we know there is an excellent fixation in the leg.
"That means the prognosis is very positive for a quicker recovery.
"He is resting up now, but will be off the crutches in around two weeks' time, when we aim to have him up and walking."
