Valencia out for 12 weeks: bid in for Hernandez?

The latest medical update is that Enner Valencia will be out for 10 to 12 weeks, which realistically means we won't see him until after Christmas. A big shame, as it wasn't even a contact injury and he had just scored against Astra. The big problem was that last season Enner didn't score enough, so that early header against Astra might have given him the confidence to go on a run. He looked jaded at the end of last season, but has undoubted ability and created a lot of chances (remember Kouyate blasting over at QPR from Valencia's pass?) Signings are often better in their second season, but alas, now we'll have to hope Enner comes back refreshed in the New Year.

Meanwhile the Evening Standard claims that West Ham have put in a £12 million bid for Man United's Javier Hernandez. He's a great finisher but my only slight concern would be that he's better coming off the bench. And Having played for Man United and Real Madrid on loan will he really want to come to West Ham? We shall see.
