West Ham United co-chairman David Gold has revealed on Twitter that Manuel Lanzini is ahead of schedule in his comeback from a knee injury, and confirmed new signing Jonathan Calleri is fit enough to travel to Romania.

The Irons jet off to the city of Giurgiu for a tricky first-leg Europa League playoff with Astra on Thursday.

Argentine striker Calleri joined West Ham on a season-long loan from Deportivo Maldonado this week, after representing his country in the Rio Olympics in recent weeks.

His participation in Brazil raised questions over whether he would make the trip to Romania, but Gold confirmed he is in contention for his debut tonight.

One man who will not travel is Calleri's fellow Argentine Lanzini, who was one of West Ham's stand-out performers during his maiden season in East London last term.

The midfielder is still out with a knee injury but Gold revealed on Twitter that he is ahead of schedule in his recovery from that problem.
