West Ham: Antonio targets new season return

Antonio, who arrived from Nottingham Forest in 2015 for around £7million, was named Hammer of the Year for his impressive performances over the course of the 2016-17 season.

The 27-year-old Englishman scored nine goals from 29 Premier League appearances – his best scoring campaign since arriving at the club – but his season was cut short after he picked up a hamstring injury in April.

He has been working tirelessly to return to full fitness in time for the next season and the Wandsworth-born star, who penned a new four-year contract last month, has provided a positive update on his recovery.

“The rehab is going well, I’m on schedule and where I want to be,” Antonio told whufc.com. “I had a short break at the end of the season, but since then I’ve been back in at the training ground every day, working hard and trying to make sure everything is right.

“It’s been a lot of gym work, just to get the strength back in the hamstring and remove the scar tissue. That’s all progressing well and I’m raring to go for the new season.”
