West Ham defender Calum Davenport and his mother were stabbed at home in Bedford last night.
Davenport was rushed to hospital where he underwent emergency surgery on “serious” injuries to both his legs.
A West Ham spokesman said: “We can confirm that Calum Davenport was being treated in hospital on Saturday afternoon after an incident late on Friday night. The 26-year-old defender and his mum both suffered stab wounds at home in Bedford.
“His mum is recovering while Calum underwent surgery this morning and his injuries were described as serious by doctors. The club’s medical team are in contact with hospital staff.
“The thoughts of everyone at West Ham are with Calum and his family and, due to the ongoing police investigation, no further information will be released at this time.”
Shocking news. Get well soon, Calum.

  2. Chringle says:

    He was reportedly on the verge of signing for Forest, so I reckon he did it to himself.

    As a Spurs fan, I want to say get well soon and Chringle, dickhead, inter-club banter has to stop, and draw a line, when stuff like this happens.
    Doesn’t matter if it’s a footballer or some random bloke, when that shit happens it’s still completely out of order.
    Let’s just hope locations/persons etc can land a verdict and someone can come to justice with this.
    Meanwhile Get Well Soon Davo, from all Spurs and West Ham fans…
