West Ham striker Dean Ashton could be thrown back into Premiership action as early as next week. The England striker has missed the whole season after breaking his ankle whilst on international duty in August.

The Hammers have missed his presence hugely, but he looks set to hand them a timely boost by making a return.

West Ham boss Alan Curbishley has revealed that Ashton could play a reserve team game early next week, which could signal his return to the first team fold. "Dean has started full running and it may be a question of taking a short cut with him so he might be involved a bit quicker," said Curbishley. "We've got a reserve game on Monday and he might be involved. He's been running fully for two weeks now as well as kicking a ball. "Sometimes you'd like to get a week of football work under his belt but he feels fit within himself. We'll push him hard over the weekend and see how we stand then."
