Zouma update ahead of Brentford


West Ham central defender Kurt Zouma may be fit for the game against Brentford on Sunday,

The big man suffered ligament problems to his ankle at Crystal Palace and at one stage it was thought he could be out for the last games of the season.

But the 28 year old is a rapid healer as he has shown since arriving at the club from Chelsea and Claret and Hugh was told this morning ( Wed) that he could possibly be involved against the Bees.

Sadly we are unlikely to see Vladi Coufal who has suffered a hamstring but it seems that Zouma could well be back for either the Brentford Premier League match or the away leg of the Europa Conference semi final.

A Hammers source seemed relatively optimistic when speaking to us but made it clear it was a managerial decision,

He said: “It’s possible the player will be fit but its whether the manager wants to risk him.”
