Roeder set for summer return

Hammers boss Glenn Roeder is out of intensive care - and set to return to work in the summer, an official announcement reveals this morning.

Roeder - who collapsed following his team's 1-0 win against Middlesbrough last week - has been taken out of the Royal London Hospital's intensive care unit, after showing a dramatic change in his condition since Friday.

The announcement, made this morning (Tuesday) said:

"Tests have revealed that Glenn has a small lesion in the brain that will require neuro-surgery in the near future. However a full recovery and a return to work is expected within the next six to eight weeks."

Rumours had suggested that 47-year-old Glenn - whom it is now known suffered a minor stroke - would be unlikely to return to work at all, so today's news is especially welcome.

However it is not known whether Roeder will be returning to his old job, or another position at the club.

In the meantime, Trevor Brooking will continue to deputise as Hammers manager.
