David Moyes has provided fans a huge positive injury update with a summer signing edging closer to a return to action.

West Ham today face high-flying Newcastle United away from home in a return to Premier League action, with Moyes’ Hammers eager to build on a recent run of positive results to show that a corner is being turned this season.

Eddie Howes’ Newcastle are set to provide a stern test however, with the Magpies chasing a Champions League spot this season whilst West Ham battle to pull away from the bottom end of the table.

A key issue this campaign for Moyes has been injuries, with Max Cornet’s in particular being one of great frustration, with the talented winger being out now for over 4 months with a calf injury which many had hoped initially would only be a couple of weeks absent.

Moyes however has provided an update to signify that Cornets injury woes could be soon coming to an end, with recent injections appearing to do the trick to enable the former Burnley players return to action very soon.

” He’s not feeling his calf muscle any more and is feeling much better,” stated the Hammers boss. “If you’re asking is he back at 100 per cent yet? No, he’s probably 60 or 70 per cent and we’re hoping that it won’t be too long.”

Despite the positive update, Moyes also admitted that Cornet has returned to France to continue his rehabilitation, however the hope is there that he should soon be back available for the Scot to utilise as our Hammers seek to turn around a so far disappointing season.

“Maxi has gone back to France again – he’s not quite ready yet to step up to training levels. We need to bring him on and hopefully get him back as quick as we can.”
