West Ham suffer fresh Diop blow

West Ham defender Issa Diop has suffered an ankle injury that could keep him out for the rest of the season.

Diop could miss the next eight weeks with ligament damage suffered in the Hammers' 1-1 draw with Burnley on Sunday, says The Guardian.

The Frenchman's injury leaves West Ham boss David Moyes with only one fit centre-back as they prepare for their crunch Europa League semi-final with Eintracht Frankfurt.

Craig Dawson is the only available central defender as Angelo Ogbonna and Kurt Zouma are also sidelined.

Moyes, who is hoping to steer West Ham to their first victory in a European semi-final since 1976, could be forced to deploy Declan Rice at the heart of his defence against Bundesliga outfit Frankfurt.
