David Gold has confirmed that West Ham United defender Aaron Cresswell could be out for a lengthy period of time.

Cresswell has damaged his knee, and is currently awaiting a scan to assess the severity of the problem.

Gold has hinted that the left-back could be set for a lengthy absence, with all around the Olympic Stadium fearing the worst.

Gold did suggest that some better news could still be on the way for Hammers fans before the season starts, though.

West Ham have made no secret of their desire to add a striker to their squad this summer.

The Hammers’ attempts have all proved unsuccessful so far, but Gold has hinted that they could still bring in a big money addition.

West Ham have reportedly failed in their pursuits of Alexandre Lacazette, Callum Wilson and Carlos Bacca so far this summer.

Bilic has still strengthened his squad, however, by bringing in the likes of Sofiane Feghouli and Gokhan Tore.
