Ashton Out Until 2009
Dean Ashton will be out until the new year. The official West Ham website has this to say on his latest injury,
"Zola will be without Ashton (for the Premier League fixture at Fulham on Saturday), who is set to be missing until the New Year as a result of his left ankle injury suffered earlier this month," said the statement.
"As announced yesterday (Thursday), the 24-year-old England international will undergo arthroscopic surgery early next week to assess the full extent of the problem. He will be on crutches for six weeks."
It looks like Ashton won't be one of the players sold in January then.
