WEST HAM defender Calum Davenport has been taken out of intensive care as he continues to recover from the stab wounds that threatened his life last week.
The 26-year-old had an operation on his leg last week and much to the relief of manager Gianfranco Zola, it seems to have done the trick.
"Like I said the other day, he is out of intensive care and on a normal ward," said the manager. "That is very, very good news and so now over the next few days they are going to assess what the damage to his legs is and they will be able to be more precise.
"Most importantly, he's out of intensive care which is the most valued thing."

Ian Collison was on the way to the match against Spurs last Sunday when he was in an accident on his motorbike on the M25, where he died at the scene.
However, the young midfielder decided that the best way to cope with the tragic news was to keep on playing, and 120 minutes against Millwall on Tuesday night was followed by 87 against Blackburn on Saturday.
"He looks all right," said Zola. "After everything that has happened to him, he must be drained. He has played three games in a week, but he is a strong boy and I am sure he can cope with the situation very well, as he has done.
