West Ham's Pedro Obiang set to miss rest of season after surgery

Pedro Obiang suffered his injury at Wigan in the FA Cup.

West Ham midfielder Pedro Obiang is expected to miss the rest of the season after a knee operation.

Obiang, 25, suffered medial ligament damage during West Ham's FA Cup defeat at Wigan on Jan. 27.

The news comes as a fresh blow to manager David Moyes, who was unable to add another holding midfielder to his squad in the window and is still dealing with a lengthy injury list.

West Ham head of medical Gary Lewin told the club's official website: "Pedro has undergone surgery to repair the medial collateral ligament, and we're delighted with how it went.

"He went to a specialist in Barcelona for the operation and he is in the best possible hands as the rehab process gets underway.

"Pedro is likely to be out for a little while, but we are confident that he will return fit and strong in ample time for preseason.''
