Senior West Ham duo Andy Carroll and Winston Reid will miss at least three months of action through injury, as confirmed on the club’s official website.

The pair had been in Switzerland for the Hammers’ pre-season preparations as the squad continue to look forward to the 2018/19 campaign under Manuel Pellegrini.

Both Carroll and Reid had been making their way back from long-term injury problems and their progression had appeared to be progressing well.

However, as revealed by the club’s new head of medical relations Richard Collinge, the two key Hammers stars will miss the start of the Premier League season.

Collinge discussed the extent of Carroll’s injury and revealed that after precautionary scans, results showed that the former England international will need to undergo surgery on his ankle.

“Andy played and scored in Sunday’s match but is still reporting some discomfort in his ankle and further scans have revealed that he requires some minor surgery to provide more strength and stability to the area.”

It was also revealed by Collinge that Reid will require surgery to help the defender recover further from a long-standing knee problem.

“Winston has been suffering some swelling around the knee, following the injury that he sustained at Swansea last season, and he too is in need of explorative surgery to clean up the area.”

West Ham linked with a move for Diego Reyes .
West Ham and Newcastle are said to be keen on adding Diego Reyes to their respective squads this summer. According to claims from Sky Sports this evening, the central defender has emerged as a target for the Hammers as Manuel Pellegrini looks to add further quality to his options at the back. West Ham have already signed Issa Diop to strengthen their central defence but following the long-term injury sustained by Winston Reid, it seems other alternatives are also being explored. Reyes was a part of Mexico’s 23-man squad for the World Cup and has previously made in excess of 50 caps for his national team. However, heading into the upcoming season, it seems Reyes is out to seek pastures new. His contract with FC Porto expired this summer and a host of clubs have since expressed an interest in signing him. Fenerbahce are also in the race for Reyes, but it seems interest from the Premier League is building regarding a move for the 25-year-old.
