Brevett out until 2004?

Hammers full-back Rufus Brevett could be out of action for several months with a broken ankle, according to reports this morning.

Brevett - who sustained the injury after falling awkwardly during saturday's 0-0 draw with Sheffield United at Upton Park - could be out of action until the new year if reports of a broken ankle are confirmed later today.

The 33-year-old full-back - who joined the Hammers just seven months ago - has been one of the most consistent performers in recent months, and his loss would represent a huge blow to Glenn Roeder who is still without long-term injuries Michael Carrick and Steve Lomas.

Whilst Lomas is expected back within the next month, Carrick's likely return remains unknown.

The England under-21 has undergone two operations on his groin this summer and has broken down in training after each one.

Whilst he is back in light training now there are no guarantees as to when the 21-year-old midfielder will return.

Brevett's injury leaves the Hammers with just ONE fit full-back at the club, Irishman Shaun Byrne. However he is yet to make a competitive start for the club.

We'll have more on this story as it happens.
