The Canadian international struggled for regular first-team football during his recent spell at Blackburn Rovers.

West Ham United were in training today ahead of their FA Cup tie with Wolves on Saturday.

The game will likely give Slaven Bilic a chance to rest several members of his stretched squad which has had to ride a storm of injury trouble over the course of the past couple of months.

Therefore some of the Hammers fringe men would have been hoping to catch the eye.

One such player was likely to be Canadian defender Doneil Henry.

He returned to the club this week after a disappointing loan spell at Blackburn Rovers came to an end. He made just one appearance for Blackburn, as a substitute, during his time at Ewood Park.

One thing for sure, he is fairly hard to miss. The Candian cuts an imposing figure and was happy and smiling as he took part in first-team training with the club.

Henry is a player who West Ham certainly have a lot of hope for regarding the future.

The talented 22-year-old arrived last January from Cypriot side Apollon Limassol as something of a gamble from Sam Allardyce.

The Canadian international is however, a year on, still waiting for his West Ham Premier League debut. In fact, to date, his only game for West Ham was in a disappointing 2-1 loss to Astra Giurgiu in the Europa League.

He will hope to get a chance at rectifying that v Wolves this weekend.
