Aaron Cresswell has revealed that he is absolutely devastated to have been ruled out for 3-4 four months with a knee ligament injury.
Cressy was on the wrong end of a horror tackle during West Ham’s 3-0 friendly win over Karlsruher SC on Saturday.
Rumours of the extent of his injury had gone in to overdrive since then, but this evening Jack Sullivan confirmed he is to be sidelined for 3-4 months.
I can confirm Cresswell is out 3-4 months.

It’s awful news for Cresswell, who has only missed one game since signing from Ipswich two summers ago.
And Cresswell took to Twitter to reveal his feelings on the news…

It’s equally devastating news for Bilic, who will now be forced in to bringing in a temporary replacement via the transfer window.
