The New Zealand international, who sprained an ankle in training earlier this month, was operated on at a London hospital.

The operation was a success but, according to a statement on the West Ham website, "no timescale has yet been set for a return to first-team action".

The club's head of sports science and sports medicine Andy Rolls said: "Winston had an operation on his ankle injury to stabilise the joint. This procedure went well.

"He will now convalesce for a few days before starting his rehabilitation."

Reid's fellow defenders James Collins and Joey O'Brien withdrew from international duty this month, but Sam Allardyce is hopeful both will be fit to face Chelsea on Saturday.

Razvan Rat is a doubt after suffering a hamstring injury while away with Romania.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
