West Ham boss David Moyes is set to be handed a huge boost with the return of Max Cornet edging closer, it has been reported by ExWHUEmployee.

The Hammers winger, who has been out of action for almost 5 months since injuring his calf back in October last year, is finally set to return to action in what is a crucial period of the season.

There is no arguing that this campaign has been underwhelming, with West Ham in the midst of a relegation battle when hopes had been for another top 7 push after a huge summer spend.

However, things haven’t gone to plan, and this season has seen mounting pressure on the manager as frustrations at the fall from a positive period for our Irons has been evident in East London.

A key factor that must be taken into account is the wretched luck with injuries, with the loss of Max Cornet proving to be damaging after the player demonstrated signs he will be a key cog on the Moyes machine.

Having been to see specialists in France to overcome the rare injury to his calf that Cornet sustained, it appears the long journey is now over with the Ivory Coast international set to make his long awaiting return.

Speaking on The West Ham Way Podcast, ExWHUEmployee reported the positive news, and that the winger could well be in the squad to face Manchester United this week.

”Cornet has been training and he’s close,” stated Ex. “It’s not confirmed but he could be in the squad that travels to Old Trafford on Wednesday.”

As we are now entering the ‘business end’ of the season, with the club desperate to pull away from the wrong end of the table, plus cup competitions in the FA Cup and Europa Conference League – the return of a player with Cornets ability will be a seen as a huge lift for Moyes and everyone connected with the club.
