All the latest key West Ham United news...

West Ham have been handed a potentially significant boost by the news Matt Jarvis is poised to return from injury.

The one-time England international has not featured since pre-season, but is targeting a return to the squad for the next Premier League game against Hull City, where the Hammers will face former midfielder Mohamed Diame.

Jarvis told West Ham's website: "I'm gutted I'm injured, I can't believe it. I did all pre-season and then missed all the games. I'm really looking forward to getting back. So if he (Sam Allardyce) is pleased I'm on the way back, I'm delighted."

The club also report that two more players are expecting to return for the clash in two weekend's time:

"On-loan right back Carl Jenkinson and James Collins should also be in contention for the game at the KC stadium."

Loanee Jenkinson himself added: "It seems like a long time out, but I have only missed three league games, so it's not been the end of the world. I'll be back soon and hopefully I can do the business on the pitch."

The Hammers have also registered their 25-man squad for the coming campaign with the Premier League, which is as follows:

Amalfitano, Carroll, Cole, Collins, Cresswell, Demel, Downing, Jaaskelainen, Jarvis, Jenkinson, Kouyate, Lletget, Noble, Nolan, O'Brien, Reid, Sakho, (Adrian) San Miguel Del Castillo, Song, Spiegel, Tomkins, Valencia, Vaz Te, Zarate.

West Ham's website adds: "Diego Poyet, Ravel Morrison, Dan Potts, Elliot Lee and Reece Burke are all classed as U21 Players for the 2014/15 season and therefore do not need to be included in the 25-man list.

And finally, a West Ham fan who ran onto the pitch against Tottenham and took a free-kick, who was fined £305 by the courts, has had the fee paid for by fellow fans after raising the money online, report the Waltham Forest Guardian.
