West Ham midfielder Pedro Obiang is set to miss the rest of the season after undergoing knee surgery, according to Sky sources.
The 25-year-old suffered medial ligament damage following a tackle from Wigan midfielder Max Power in the Hammers' 2-0 FA Cup fourth-round defeat at the DW Stadium last month.
Obiang underwent surgery on the injury at the weekend and is now set for a lengthy period of time on the sidelines.
In the immediate aftermath of the match on January 27, David Moyes said: "Pedro looks as if he's got a medial knee ligament, we will have him sent for a scan to tell us exactly what's wrong."
Prior to the injury, Obiang had featured 26 times for West Ham this season, scoring twice, including a spectacular long-range strike against Tottenham at Wembley.
West Ham are without a win in their last four games in all competitions and suffered a 3-1 defeat to Brighton on Saturday to leave themselves three points above the relegation zone.
