LONDON (Reuters) - West Ham United defender Ryan Fredericks has been ruled out for at least a month after suffering a hamstring strain in Sunday’s FA Cup third round win at Gillingham, the Premier League club said on Monday.

The damage suffered by the 27-year-old fullback was revealed by a scan on Monday.

"Ryan injured his hamstring while chasing back late in the first half and was assessed immediately before undergoing a scan," West Ham's medical chief Richard Collinge told the club's website here

“He will now begin a period of rehabilitation and recovery, with the plan being to return to action before the end of February.”
