West Ham United co-chairman David Gold has taken to Twitter to praise left back Arthur Masuaku as he makes his return from injury.

Masuaku, 23, joined the Hammers from Olympiacos last summer, as manager Slaven Bilic looked to bring in another left back to offer cover and competition for Aaron Cresswell.

The Frenchman penned a four-year contract with the club, and with Cresswell suffering from injury at the start of the season, Masuaku was thrown into Premier League action.

Masuaku endured a hot-and-cold start to life in East London, and particularly struggled during an error-strewn performance in the 4-2 away defeat at West Bromwich Albion in September.

The left back has made just one Premier League appearance since that game, playing 90 minutes in the 5-1 home defeat to Arsenal in December, having struggled for form and fitness at the London Stadium.

Now, co-chairman David Gold has taken to Twitter to reveal that Masuaku is now working his way back from injury, and should be available for selection for next weekend's trip to take on Watford at Vicarage Road.

After sending that message, Gold received a tweet from a West Ham fan, who suggested that despite his disappointing display at West Brom, Masuaku is in fact a good player.

Gold responded by agreeing, stating that he's a good player and has potential to get even better once he settles in at the London Stadium and overcomes his recent injury problems.

What do you think about Masuaku's start to life at West Ham?
