Former loan star Davenport stabbed at home

Former loan star Calum Davenport and his mother were stabbed at their home in Bedford last night.

Davenport, 26, spent the second half on loan with Sunderland and had hoped to join the club permanently. Davenport was stabbed in both legs and required surgery this morning.

West Ham released a statement on their official website regarding the incident: 'West Ham United 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.'
