West Ham center-back Jose Fonte could be back in action come early February after recovering from ankle surgery.
The 34-year-old suffered the injury back in October and had surgery to correct the problem, forcing him to spend three months on the sidelines. However, Fonte returned to light training earlier this week and manager David Moyes suggested the center-back is edging ever close to a first-team return. "Jose Fonte is doing a little bit of training, so we’re getting a few more back as go along," said Moyes. The Portugal defender won't be available for Saturday's FA Cup tie against Wigan, though his participation in training is a step in the right direction. With Winston Reid also out injured, Moyes will continue to rely on Aaron Cresswell, Angelo Ogbonna and James Collins in defense. Jan 25 - 6:41 PM
