West Ham United can confirm that Ravel Morrison has undergone successful minor groin surgery.

The 21-year-old was diagnosed with the condition during pre-season testing and had a minor procedure at a central London hospital on Tuesday afternoon.

The operation was completed without complications and, following a period of rehabilitation, it is expected the England U21 midfielder will return to training in a few weeks when the first-team squad return from New Zealand.

The No15 has scored five goals in 22 first-team appearances since joining the Hammers from Manchester United in January 2012, scoring the Club's Goal of the Season in a 3-0 Barclays Premier League victory at Tottenham Hotspur in November last year.

The Wythenshawe-born player also featured 17 times for Queens Park Rangers on loan last season, scoring six goals to help the Hoops win promotion from the Championship.
