West Ham: Nayef Aguerd nearing return amid journalist’s upload

Image for West Ham: Nayef Aguerd nearing return amid journalist’s upload

Nayef Aguerd has been spotted training with the rest of his West Ham teammates ahead of their upcoming Europa Conference League fixture.

The 26-year-old was signed for £30m in the summer but is yet to make his competitive debut for the club.

He hobbled off in a pre-season friendly against Rangers back in July and had to undergo ankle surgery as a result.

However, taking to social media last week the Moroccan centre-back posted a picture of himself entitled ‘happy to be back on the pitch’.

Now his return to action seems imminent after Roshane Thomas’ update on Twitter.

He uploaded a video of the Hammers players training at Rush Green and captioned it:

Open training session at Rush Green. Nayef Aguerd and Lucas Paqueta training with the main group.’

TIF Thoughts on Aguerd and West Ham…

Will Aguerd shine at West Ham?





Injury expert Ben Dinnery had previously claimed that the 25-cap titan would be in contention for a return to action sometime this month.

Speaking in his press conference on Wednesday David Moyes said that the ex-Rennes man could be in contention for the visit of Silkeborg.

It will come as a huge boost to the Scottish manager with his side only keeping five clean sheets in 18 games across all competitions.

The 6 ft 1 towering defender was instrumental in Rennes finishing fourth in Ligue 1 last season and posting a 7.05 average match rating (SofaScore).

Only Jarrod Bowen (7.09) and Declan Rice (7.19) had a higher average at the Irons last term and it will be interesting to see how he is integrated into the side in the coming weeks.
