Mohamed Diame is ready to feature in West Ham's friendly against Bournemouth on Saturday, according to David Gold.
The midfielder, who had been at the centre of speculation over his future earlier in the summer, had been given extra recovery time before returning to training with the rest of the squad.
But co-owner Gold has revealed on Twitter that Diame will be part of the squad for the pre-season clash at Dean Court, which kicks off at 3pm.
West Ham have won their opening two friendlies, against Cork and Boreham Wood, and will be keen to make it three out of three, taking advantage of an earlier start to the other Premier League teams.
The Hammers next test after Saturday with a trip to League One Colchester on Tuesday, before Sam Allardyce's men head off on their tour of Germany, where they will face Mainz 05, Hamburg SV and Eintracht Braunschweig.
