KIERON Dyer has been given the go ahead to take the next step of is recovery from a broken leg.
The West Ham and England midfielder, who is sponsoring Ipswich Town's Under 18s friendly against Arsenal on Thursday, saw a specialist this week and had scans on the leg which has been pinned.
Dyer is unable to begin training yet but the club's medical staff are pleased with his progress.
Hammers head physio George Cooper said: "Kieron met with his surgeon yesterday and it went really well as he said that Kieron was right on schedule with his rehabilitation.
"He had an X-ray which showed the bone is growing round the fracture at the rate we would expect it to.
"He was given the all-clear to continue using two crutches and to put the injured leg down, gradually introducing weight over the next month.

"If that goes well the process will then be to use one crutch, thus introducing more weight and then, after that, walking with no crutches at all."
