Good news for West Ham as Lanzini, Sakho eye February returns

West Ham United's head of medical and sports science Stijn Vandenbroucke reveals that the duo of Manuel Lanzini and Diafra Sakho will be making a return to full fitness this month.

Lanzini and Sakho both suffered injury setbacks last month and the absence of the attacking pair has been a blow for the Hammers.

Now as a huge boost though, Vandenbroucke has revealed that both Argentine playmaker Lanzini and Senegalese striker Sakho are working their way back to a first-team return in the coming weeks.

Vandenbroucke told the club's official website: "We have more positive news with the return of Manuel Lanzini and Diafra Sakho from long-term injuries

"Lanzini is only a few days away before re-joining the team.

"Sakho is not far behind him but he needs more work because he has been out for around ten weeks so he will have a period of extra fitness work under his belt.

"We hope to see him back in action by the end of the month."
