The striker is showing no signs of the injury that has kept him out for ten weeks.
West Ham United striker Enner Valencia is nearing a return to first-team action and demonstrated his fitness with a well taken goal in training earlier today, posted by the Hammers' official Twitter account.

The 25-year old has been out since damaging his right fibula in a Europa League qualifying tie in July.
He was unhappy with his treatment by the club following his injury and claimed they had ‘forgotten him’. He subsequently apologised to the club for his outburst - as reported by the Mirror - and will now look to start doing his talking on the pitch.
The Ecuadorian impressed in his first campaign, scoring four goals in 32 Premier League games last season, and will add welcome strength in depth to the Hammers’ front line.
Andy Carroll has recently returned to fitness, adding to the likes of Diafra Sakho, Victor Moses and Mauro Zarate and giving West Ham a healthy-looking selection up front.
Slaven Bilic has made an excellent start to his Hammers career and will need all of his attacking options available if he is to build on this season’s early promise.
