Calum Davenport has been given the all-clear to return to football - just two months after nearly losing his life in a vicious knife attack.
The United centre half was attacked outside his family home back in August and was in a critical condition for a while before eventually recovering.
Davenport returned to Chadwell Heath a fortnight ago but it was thought unlikely that he would ever play top-flight football again due to the nature of his injuries.
However it has been confirmed this week by the surgeons who operated on the former Coventry centre half that Davenport should in fact be able to ressurect his career in the near future - despite having permanent scars said to be around 15" long from the attack.
Davenport - who sustained a broken neck in his first game of a loan spell at Watford last year - is unlikely to feature for West Ham again having been surplus to requirements since falling out with manager Gianfranco Zola back in January.
However the news that he is finally set to resume his career will no doubt please everyone at the club.
