West Ham United's Head of Medical and Sports Science Stijn Vandenbroucke has described Ghana star Andre Ayew as a great player and cannot wait to have the injured player back in action.

Ayew, who is the club’s record signing, has been out of action since suffering an opening day thigh injury in August.

But the Ghana international is days away from making a return to the pitch to help the Hammers who are fighting for results.

Vandenbroucke, who is in the country with Andre Ayew and Ashley Fletcher on a Betway activation programme, says West Ham cannot wait to have Ayew back.

''Andre is a great player and as a great player he is very important to the West Ham United family,'' he said

''His comeback will be crucial but we believe it is a team effort and definitely we will turn things around.''
