LONDON: West Ham’s French striker Freddie Kanoute is to fly to Canada in a bid to resolve the long-running groin problem that has restricted him to seven Premiership appearances this season.
Kanoute missed their FA Cup clash with Nottingham Forest yesterday to consult Vancouver-based consultant Alex McCetney, who has worked with other players at the club.
“He is a physiotherapist that specialises in rehab and he has a worldwide reputation,” West Ham manager Glenn Roeder said.
With Kanoute’s striking partner Paulo di Canio also out injured, Roeder is hoping to sign three players during the January transfer window to boost the club’s fight against relegation.
Tottenham’s former England forward Les Ferdinand is one of the names touted. – AFP
