WEST Ham forward Enner Valencia has been ruled out for at least 10 weeks despite doctors easing fears he may need an operation on his fibula.

It was initially feared that Valencia would face six months out after he was carried off during last week’s Europa League 2-2 draw with Astra Giurgiu. He could be sidelined until November anyway, but a decision on surgery has been delayed for now.

Club doctor Stijn Vandenbroucke said: “If everything goes to plan we hope he’ll be available for selection again within 10 to 12 weeks.”
