West Ham defender Calum Davenport, who has also played for Norwich, Tottenham, Watford, Coventry and Southampton, suffered heavy bleeding after he was stabbed in both legs at his mother's home in Bedford on Saturday morning.

Worrell Whitehurst, 25, of Finsley Walk in Derby, appeared at Bedford Magistrates' Court today charged with attacking Davenport and the player's mother, 49-year-old Kim Stupple.

Davenport remains in a serious but stable condition in hospital after undergoing emergency surgery over the weekend. His mother is said to be recovering well.
