Posted By: Staff

London, Aug.26 (ANI): Doctors have said they are "confident" of saving stabbed footballer Calum Davenport's leg.

The West Ham player is making a good recovery and was moved from intensive care to a general ward.

It was feared the 26-year-old Premier League defender may lose his left leg after being stabbed several times on Saturday.

A main artery was severed in the attack, allegedly carried out by his pregnant sister's boyfriend Worrell Whitehurst.

Calum's family, who are keeping a bedside vigil at Bedford Hospital, were said to be "over the moon".

Calum's mum Kim, 50, who was also injured in the attack, has been discharged from the same hospital.

Whitehurst, 25, from Derby, is charged with grievous bodily harm. (ANI)
