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 to step up pursuit of Alfie Mawson .
West Ham are ready to step up their pursuit of Swansea City defender Alfie Mawson, according to reports. After being told by Newcastle United that Jamaal Lascelles is not for sale, the Hammers are set to go back in for Mawson after having a bid rejected by the Swans earlier in the window. The news that Winston Reid will miss the start of the season has only heightened West Ham’s need to bring in a new defender and it looks like Mawson is the man they want. Tottenham Hotspur and Everton also have an interest in the 24-year-old, although the Blues are chasing other defensive targets, such as Barcelona’s Yerry Mina. However, with Toby Alderweireld’s future at White Hart Lane in doubt, Spurs could be in the market for another defender and Mawson is one of the names on their shortlist. After getting a lot of their transfers done early, buying a defender could be the last piece of business that the Hammers do this summer.
