West Ham United midfielder Cheikhou Kouyate has been given the all-clear ahead of Sunday's meeting with Tottenham Hotspur.

The Senegal midfielder fell awkwardly in training on Tuesday afternoon and was immediately taken to hospital, prompting fears he has suffered a broken arm or wrist.

But the Hammers have since confirmed that after undergoing a medical assessment, the 25-year-old is clear to resume training on Wednesday.

Kouyate, a powerful central midfielder by trade, has filled in at centre half in recent weeks due to more injury concerns at Upton Park but is likely to return to a midfield berth.

Manager Sam Allardyce will be pleased to have avoided another potential long-term injury absence following the news that Andy Carroll will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury.

The West Ham boss has been handed further boosts after defenders James Collins and Winston Reid returned to training. The club's first-choice defensive pairing have missed the last three games with respective hamstring problems but will now also be in line to return at White Hart Lane.

Midfielders Matt Jarvis and Diego Poyet have also returned to training after recent absences, giving Allardyce a near fully-fit squad once again.
