Andre Ayew, West Ham United’s linchpin will need no surgery to correct the thigh injury which has sidelined him since making his debut two weeks ago at Chelsea.
The Ghana international is said to have begun rehabilitation and will be out for two to three months.
Ayew, who was Swansea City’s top scorer last season, is expected to make a return to the pitch in November ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations next January.
He sprained a muscle in his thigh when he tried to keep the tabs on Chelsea star Eden Hazard in their Premier League opener at Stamford Bridge.
Ayew completed a three-year move worth £20.5 million from Swansea to become the club’s record signing.
