West Ham United can confirm that Ryan Fredericks has been ruled out of action until next month after suffering a hamstring strain during Sunday’s FA Cup third round victory at Gillingham.
A scan on Monday morning revealed a small amount of damage to the muscle in his right leg and the 27-year-old has already started his recovery at Rush Green.
Head of Medical Richard Collinge said: “Ryan injured his hamstring while chasing back late in the first half and was assessed immediately before undergoing a scan.
“He will now begin a period of rehabilitation and recovery, with the plan being to return to action before the end of February.”
Everyone at West Ham United would like to wish Ryan a full and speedy recovery.
