Hearts have confirmed that Lithuanian defender Marius Zaliukas will resume first-team training on Tuesday.
The 26-year-old has not played for the Tynecastle outfit since September after injuring his ankle.
However, Zaliukas is fit again following a frustrating spell on the sidelines kicking his heels.
Zaliukas is relishing the prospect of training with his team-mates and hopes to be available for selection shortly.
"I am looking forward to tomorrow as it has been a long time," Zaliukas told the club's official website.
"Of course it has been a frustrating time for me watching from the sidelines and unable to help the team.
"But with a bit of luck it won't be too long before I am available for selection again.
"It hasn't been easy being out for so long but I'm ready to do as much as I can to get back into the side.
"We are in the middle of an important run of matches and I want to get back to help us improve our position in the league."
