An update from ExWHUemployee has prompted many West Ham United fans of Twitter to speculate about a new-right back for the club.

social media legend revealed that will be missing for four to seven weeks after pulling up with a hamstring problem at Gillingham – Ex also said that a loan will be the most likely measure taken to replace him in January.
