West Ham have been rocked by the news that £6.1million signing Julien Faubert will be out of action for six months after rupturing his Achilles tendon.

The 23-year-old French midfielder suffered the injury during Tuesday night´s pre-season match against Sigma Olomouc and has flown to Strasbourg to undergo surgery.

West Ham manager Alan Curbishley said: "It´s a devastating blow for everyone, especially Julien. He had fitted in so well and was showing all the attributes needed to be a success in the Premiership."
