West Ham striker Zavon Hines set to miss rest of season

Hines says he is determined to regain his first-team place

West Ham striker Zavon Hines is likely to miss the rest of the season after undergoing knee surgery.

The 21-year-old, who has not played since 5 December, scored twice in 15 first-team appearances this season.

"I am just looking to work as hard as I can to get back," the England under-21 player told the club's website.

West Ham say they hope to wrap up a loan deal for Blackburn forward Benni McCarthy and the signing of an unnamed Brazilian striker on Monday.

Manager Gianfranco Zola acknowledged the absence of Hines was a blow for a side which has only scored twice in their last five matches.

"It is a real pity for us to have lost Zavon," said Zola.

"He is still young and hopefully his recovery will go well."
