West Ham midfielder Alou Diarra is set to spend the rest of the season on the sidelines due to a cruciate knee ligament injury.
The French International was conflicted with the injury during his side's 2-1 victory over Cheltenham Town in the Capital One Cup, and the Hammers boss Sam Allardyce has confirmed that he could miss the rest of the Premier League season.
The Hammers manager told reporters: "The injury is more serious than we expected and it is an ACL [anterior cruciate ligament] reconstruction unfortunately.
"That will probably finish his season and that is a big blow to us in squad terms. He was hoping to forge his way into the side this season but, obviously with the injury, now that wont be the case."
West Ham manager Sam Allardyce, who has been informed that he must sell players in order to sign new players, has made a list of four players who he will be looking to sell before the end of the transfer window.
The Tigers boss Steve Bruce has reportedly been linked with a move for West Ham's Alou Diarra as an option to boost his midfield.

Having allowed moves for Tom Cairney and Corry Evans from the KC Stadium to Championship club Blackburn Rovers this summer , Bruce is keen to have a midfield option on board which could give his team much more stability before the start of the new season, according to The People.
Blackburn boss Steve Kean has been linked with a shock move for Bordeaux midfielder Alou Diarra. Marseille are also interested in the France international.
