The 28 year-old played an intergal part in the Hammer's impressive start to the season before facing an extended spell on the sidelines.

Defender Winston Reid and winger Victor Moses (both hamstring) are also back in training after spells out but boss Slaven Bilic says they are not match fit and will probably return in the FA Cup against Wolves next weekend.

Left-back Aaron Cresswell missed the 2-1 win over Southampton with a tight hamstring and will be handed a late fitness test. Striker Diafra Sakho (thigh) is still out.
