A recent report by BeIN Sports states that the ex-defender for Stade Rennes will be out of action for the third quarter after injuring his knee during a friendly against Rangers, a Scottish side.
Aguerd (26 years old) was signed by Moyes only earlier in the summer.
Moyes would be relieved to finally add a centre-back to the squad after reaching an agreement with Stade Rennes worth PS31.5m.
But, with Moyes now on the sidelines for a considerable time, the Scottish tactician won’t have any choice but to delay the Moroccan defender’s competitive debut.
The Hammers will hope that the club can provide more information about the 26-year old’s recent injury. However, they will be hoping for a better outcome, but these latest reports will cause them to fear the worst.
