Demel leaves hospital

Filed: Sunday, 12th January 2014
By: Staff Writer

Guy Demel has been released from hospital following an overnight stay.

West Ham's right back was admitted to hospital yesterday afternoon after falling awkwardly during the 2-0 win at Cardiff with the game just a matter of minutes old.

Initial reports suggested that he had sustained a broken elbow and facial damage, however West Ham this morning confirmed that Demel was kept in overnight as the result of concussion from a head injury and released early today.

It is not know at this stage whether Demel - who received treatment on the pitch in Cardiff for some ten minutes before being stretchered off - will be passed fit to face Newcastle next week.
