Valencia struggled in his first season in English football, scoring just four goals and providing three assists in 37 appearances.

The Colombian started off well, with three goals and two assists in his first seven starts, but managed just two goals and one assist the rest of the season after dealing with a toe injury. Chelsea are reportedly interested in signing Valencia this offseason but West Ham are determined to keep him around in hopes of a prolific sophomore campaign.

Valencia completed an individual training session Wednesday, and he is expected to be cleared to face Manchester City on Saturday after recovering from a toe injury, the club's official website reports.

Valencia aggravated a toe injury last weekend against Stoke City, but it was never considered overly serious and he'll likely slot back into the starting XI against City. However, even more of the scoring load will be on his shoulders with Diafra Sakho out for the season because of a thigh injury.

Valencia aggravated his toe injury during Saturday's match against Stoke City, coming off in the 59th minute. "Enner was never going to be able to play the full 90 minutes, but he got a kick as well and we're hoping it won't be enough to keep him out for next week," manager Sam Allardyce said.

Valencia missed a few games with the recent ailment, which he suffered on a broken toothbrush holder in his home, and his absence could be a massive blow for the Hammers, who also lost Diafra Sakho in the match because of a thigh injury.

Valencia (toe) is not in the 18-man squad to face Leicester City on Saturday.

Valencia said earlier this week that he was feeling good following the freak accident that resulted in a gash on his toe, but he's apparently not quite fit enough to make the squad.

Valencia has returned to training after suffering a lacerated toe in an accident at home, according to the club's official website. ďIím feeling great at the moment as Iíve been able to get back on the pitch this week and kick the ball. Iíve been running for a few days and am feeling very well, so it just depends on what the manager and the staff decide now,Ē Valencia said.

It sounds like the Ecuadorian has a shot to feature in this weekend's match versus Leicester City, but prospective fantasy owners should have a contingency plan in place due to the murky nature of his status.

Valencia (toe) will not play Saturday against Sunderland, manager Sam Allardyce confirmed Thursday.

Valencia is sidelined after cutting his foot in an accident at home, and it came at a terrible time for West Ham, who are without Andy Carroll for the rest of the year because of a knee injury. Diafra Sakho will start up front, with the potential to be joined by Carlton Cole or Nene.

Valencia is likely to miss Saturday's match against Arsenal after cutting his toe on a broken tea cup at his home Tuesday. Valencia was taken to the hospital to address the wound, and manager Sam Allardyce said the accident will likely result in the striker missing at least one match. "Enner has had an accident at home and has cut his big toe quite severely on a broken cup," Allardyce said. "It has been stitched. We're not exactly certain but we think it will be too soon for him to be considered for the game at Arsenal on Saturday. It was a freak accident at a time when we could have done without it due to our lack of available strikers."

The Hammers are already without Andy Carroll for the rest of the season because of a knee injury, while Carlton Cole is sidelined with a Grade 2 hamstring injury, which could force Allardyce to use a single striker (Diafra Sakho) against Arsenal.
