Southampton midfielder James Ward-Prowse has returned to first-team training after fracturing his foot back in September.
The exciting youngster has been side-lined since being stretchered off in the Premier League victory against Swansea City and having been initially ruled out for 10 weeks he is now back on the training field.
Southampton posted a picture of the 20-year-old on Thursday along with the following message: "Look who joined the Saints squad for training this morning. Welcome back @Prowsey16."
Southampton started the season in excellent form but lost all three of their recent matches against Manchester City, Arsenal and Manchester United.
Ronald Koeman will want them to get back to winning ways this weekend and it will be interesting to see how much of an impact the talented Ward-Prowse can have in the second half of a season that still promises much on the South Coast.
