West Ham United women’s defender Erin Simon is set to undergo surgery on a knee injury.
The full-back has made an impressive start to the season for Matt Beard’s Irons, registering assists for two goals in the Barclays FA Women’s Super League this campaign already.
However, the No3 is set for a stint on the sidelines after the decision was made for Simon to undergo surgery on a persistent knee issue.
Women’s lead physiotherapist Elena Jobson said the defender will return home to New Jersey following her surgery to undergo her rehabilitation.
“Erin has been managing a knee problem for a while and, unfortunately, the recovery we hoped for from a conservative approach has not taken,” Jobson told whufc.com. “The decision has therefore been made for Erin to undergo surgery, which will keep her out of action until early next year.
“After her surgery, Erin will travel back home for a spell of rehabilitation before returning to West Ham to complete her comeback from injury.”
Everyone at West Ham United wishes Erin a speedy recovery from her knee injury and all the best in her recovery process.
