A Sky Sports reporter has posted a lengthy video from West Ham training with a big update on Maxwel Cornet.
West Ham face Nottingham Forest in a huge relegation six-pointer this weekend.
The Hammers dropped into the bottom three with defeat to Spurs while Forest managed a 1-1 draw against Man City.
That increased the gap between Forest and West Ham to five points.
David Moyes is a man under severe pressure. And he knows West Ham must win five or six of the remaining 15 games to have a chance of staying up – starting at home against Forest.
Injuries have been a real problem for West Ham of late.
But there was some light at the end of that particular tunnel when Kurt Zouma and Cornet were pictured back in training this week.
There has also been hugely positive news on the potential availability of record signing Lucas Paqueta.
Now a Sky Sports reporter has posted a lengthy video from West Ham training with a big Cornet update.
Gary Cotterill was at Rush Green on Wednesday morning for Sky Sports and filmed a three-minute segment discussing the perceived mood in camp, Moyes’ future and player availability.
He confirmed that Cornet had returned to training yesterday but noted that he had not Wednesday’s session at the time of filming.
That will cause concern among West Ham fans given Cornet has suffered a series of setbacks during his near five-month absence.
But Cotterill suggested it may not necessarily be anything to worry about because Cornet could well be doing some individual work in the gym prior to joining the grass session.
The Sky Sports reporter also claimed the mood among the players seemed upbeat stating “they seem up for the fight”.
“Another bit of good news, although you can’t see him out there unfortunately, is the return to training of Maxwel Cornet, who has been missing since October,” Cotterill said on Sky Sports.
“That will be a boost for West Ham fans. We were hoping to see him out there. But he must be doing a bit of work elsewhere and joining in when the team do tactical stuff later. (This is) just the warm up stuff going on there as you can see.
“Because he was joining in with the training yesterday for the first time in quite some time.”
