Talented West Ham United winger Nathan Holland is set to be out for around three months after suffering a torn hamstring in training.

The prospect made his senior debut for West Ham in the Carabao Cup win against Bolton Wanderers in September and is widely seen as one of West Ham's most exciting youngsters but he is now poised for a spell on the sidelines, as reported by Football London.

Holland tweeted to confirm that he has undergone successful surgery.
