Injury blow for Vaz Te

Published Add your comment

West Ham forward Ricardo Vaz Te could be out for up to 12 weeks after suffering a dislocated shoulder in the 3-1 defeat to Arsenal.

The 26-year-old had to be replaced by Matt Taylor just after the hour-mark after falling awkwardly following a challenge with Arsenal goalkeeper Vito Mannone. Hammers boss Sam Allardyce confirmed after the match that Vaz Te would not be fit to return until after the international break and could be out until the festive period.

"No he won't be right, it will be six to 12 weeks depending," he said.
