West Ham striker Xande Silva has claimed he is heading back to fitness and will soon be available for Manuel Pellegrini’s side West Ham.
Silva has been unavailable for the side after undergoing surgery on hernia problem and has missed most of the year for both the senior side and the Under 23s.
After scoring for the youngsters he was called up into the senior side of West Ham for the defeat to Burnley at the end of December but has not featured since the FA Cup clash with Birmingham, although he now says he is close to a return.

Silva updated his Twitter account at the weekend saying, ‘Coming back soon.’
Fabian Balbuena returned to the squad on Friday after being out for the past two months with a knee injury and he is likely to feature in the trip to Manchester City on Wednesday, although that game will be too early for Silva.
