Valencia continues to recover from his knee injury, and he could return by November.

Valencia has yet to play this season due to the ailment, and he may find playing time hard to come by, with Diafra Sakho entrenched as a starter and now joined by Nikica Jelavic, who signed from Hull just before the closer of the summer transfer window. Additionally, Andy Carroll continues to recover from his injury and could return before Valencia.

Valencia (knee) is on track to return to full training by the end of October.

Valencia has been out since suffering the injury during a Europa League qualifying match back in July, leaving Diafra Sakho as the only healthy striker, with Andy Carroll (knee) still out and Mauro Zarate suffering a hamstring injury in training this week.

Valencia announced Monday that he will not require surgery on his injured knee.

Valencia suffered the injury last Thursday against Astra Giurgiu in a Europa League match, and there were legitimate fears that he had ligament damage that could sideline him until December. While it's certainly encouraging that he will not need surgery, he remains out indefinitely.

Valencia will meet with a specialist in London on Monday to determine the severity of the knee and ankle injuries he suffered during Thursday's Europa League match against Astra Giurgiu.

The club is concerned that the knee injury could be significant, possibly sidelining Valencia until December. They have apparently reached out to QPR about the potential of adding Charlie Austin, but as of now they'll roll with Diafra Sakho up front, with Andy Carroll returning from injury at some point.

Valencia had to be stretchered off the pitch during West Ham's Europa League match with Astra Giurgiu on Thursday after suffering a knee injury, and he will have a scan to determine the severity of the issue, the BBC reports.

West Ham manager Slaven Bilic noted after the match that he believes the knee injury is serious, which could put a serious dent in Valencia's fantasy value early this season. It appears he's now unlikely to play in West Ham's Premier League opener against Arsenal, leaving Diafra Sakho and Mauro Zarate as the potential starting forwards.

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.
