Dyer's Operation Goes Well
Kieron Dyer, speaking on the official site, has revealed that the doctors were pleased with his surgery and expect him to make a full recovery.
"I've been trying to stay as positive as I can," he said. "The physios and the specialist were really pleased with how the operation went and said there is no reason why I shouldn't make a full recovery.
"I am just focusing on that for now and getting some rest before I hopefully beginning my rehab and treatment some time next week.
"They don't really give exact time scales with this type of injury because some people heal a lot quicker than others and there can be complications when you have screws put in so you just have to play it by ear really, but as I said I am staying positive and just focusing on being back and playing for West Ham sooner rather than later."
The official site also revealed that Dean Ashton will play in tonight's reserve game against Reading in order to help him return to full match fitness.
