Sears makes return to Hammers
The 20-year-old was due to stay at Selhurst Park for the entire season but Hammers manager Gianfranco Zola has seen his strikeforce decimated by injuries to Carlton Cole, Luis Boa Morte and Zavon Hines as well as Dean Ashton's retirement. With Mexican forward Guillermo Franco suspended this weekend, Sears is likely to find himself thrust straight into the squad to face Arsenal in the FA Cup. Sears did not manage a single goal during his spell with the Eagles, although he infamously had a perfectly good effort ruled out at Bristol City in August after the ball rebounded back out of the net.
