West Ham defensive pair Byram and Reid out for season

West Ham defensive pair Sam Byram and Winston Reid are out for the season.

The defensive duo suffered their injuries in the Hammers' painful 4-1 defeat away to relegation rivals Swansea at the weekend, says the Mirror.

New Zealand international centre-back Reid had to go off on a stretcher just 27 minutes into Saturday's game at the Liberty Stadium, after damaging ligaments in his right knee in an awkward penalty box fall.

And his emergency replacement, right-back Byram, then suffered an ankle injury that is also expected to keep him sidelined long term.

The two injuries are a major setback for boss David Moyes with West Ham still in relegation danger — just three points outside the bottom three after losing three out of their last four top flight games by a combined score of 11-3.
