West Ham United can confirm that Andriy Yarmolenko has undergone successful surgery to repair a damaged Achilles tendon.

The Ukraine international sustained the injury during Saturday’s 1-0 defeat against Tottenham Hotspur at London Stadium. He had an operation on Monday morning and is expected to be sidelined for around six months.

Head of Medical Services Richard Collinge said: “Andriy’s operation went well and we will now work hard to support him throughout the rehabilitation process.

“His recovery will be planned very carefully and we have every confidence that he will return to full fitness within the scheduled timeframe.”
