Adriana Leon

Adriana Leon undergoes successful surgery

Adriana Leon has undergone successful revision surgery on a foot fracture that she sustained earlier this year. 

The Canadian forward originally sustained the injury in February of this year, but through lots of hard work towards the back end of the 2020/21 campaign, got herself fit for the 2020 Olympic Games where she helped her country to clinch gold. 

The revision surgery has been conducted to help with the ongoing pain that the forward has experienced since picking up the original injury earlier this year. 

The forward will now spend time recovering, before working hard with our medical team to be back out on the pitch as soon as possible. All being well, we hope to have her back out in the Claret & Blue of West Ham United in the New Year. 

Leon has made six appearances for the Hammers so far this season, scoring against Aston Villa in our opening home game of the new season. 

Everyone at West Ham United would like to wish Adriana well as she recovers from her surgery, and we look forward to having her back out on the pitch in the New Year.
