Joe Gomez is back in training for Liverpool, manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed.
Gomez came through a session yesterday morning and Liverpool are encouraged by his progress.
The England international played a key role for the Reds in the first half of the season before picking up an injury.
Now he is returning at a crucial time, with Liverpool having just seven Premier League games left, and into the Champions League quarter finals.
Gomez struck up a superb partnership with Virgil van Dijk in the first half of the season.
Liverpool are glad to have him back, but aren't going to rush him. Don't expect to see him start against Tottenham this weekend.
Jurgen Klopp told Liverpool's official website: "It is nice – Joe is not injured anymore and nearly fit.
"After a long time, I think Joe was out for 15 weeks, that is long, so he needs to now create the basis again for the rest of the season."
Here is a look at how Liverpool fans reacted to the reports...
