West Ham have been handed a welcome boost surrounding the injury recovery of summer signing Max Cornet, it has been reported by ExWHUEmployee.

The Ivory Coast international has been absent for over 4 months, having picked up an injury to his calf which was deemed to be initially a knock which would be a short term recovery period. Unfortunately however the condition was diagnosed as a rare one which has caused significant delay in getting the player back fit and available.

Ex reported that Cornet has been seeing a specialist in France, with the player undertaking injections to aid the recovery process, as opposed to having surgery which would require an even lengthier lay-off. Although Ex has stated that a virus has also delayed the players recovery.

Speaking on The West Ham Way Podcast, our man-in-the-know has now reported that the player is said to have been given the go-ahead from the specialist to resume training with West Ham, and build up his fitness to return to action for David Moyes’ side.

“Cornet appears to have been given positive news to resume training, although whether he’ll resume immediately is unclear,” stated Ex on the show. “He has been absent for some time so he’ll be working to build up his fitness before becoming available for selection”.

David Moyes is currently sweating on the fitness of both Lucas Paqueta and Nayef Aguerd, who both left the field on Saturday against Chelsea, with Ex to provide updates on Patreon once the situation is clear.
