Press AssociationPress Association 25/07/2016

West Ham defender Aaron Cresswell will miss the start of the EPL season after being ruled out for up to four months with a knee injury.

The 26-year-old left-back, one of the Hammers' most consistent performers last term, suffered ligament damage in their pre-season friendly win over Karlsruher in Austria on Saturday.

Cresswell will see a specialist in London next week to determine whether or not he requires surgery.

West Ham's medical chief Stijn Vandenbroucke told the club website: "Whatever course of action we decide to take, Aaron faces a period of rest, followed by treatment and rehabilitation and he will be out for a period of between three and four months."
