The midfield maestro has been out of action since May 2015.
Leicester City midfielder Matty James has expressed his joy at getting back into action with The Foxes first-team.
The 24-year-old came on for the second-half during a 2-0 victory over Oxford United on Tuesday and it was his first appearance in a Leicester shirt since suffering a horrific knee injury.
James has been back in first-team training since April, but played no part in Leicester’s incredible Premier League title winning season.
James’ last appearance for Leicester before Tuesday evening came against Southampton in May 2015 – so this was his first game back after 14 months without first-team action.
So he was of course ecstatic with making a comeback, sending out this tweet yesterday to highlight his pleasure:
Unbelievable feeling to be back on the pitch with the boys! The support has been amazing pic.twitter.com/jD2IIkA4vN

James will of course have a fight on getting into the Leicester City midfield that helped guide them to the league title – but with N’Golo Kante leaving and the club playing in the Champions League, there might very well be a chance for the former Manchester United youngster to get back into the Leicester picture under manager Claudio Ranieri.
