Dan Seaborne will make his long-awaited return to training with Southampton on Monday as his road to recovery gathers pace following an assault outside a nightclub.
The 24-year-old, who played six games for the Saints earlier this season before the attack in the city centre, was left with serious head injuries and boss Nigel Adkins is glad to see his defender back in action.
"On the 30th of this month, Dan will be able to come back into the training ground environment," said the Southampton manager.
"We can get him used to training again, so we will see how quickly he progresses through that.
"It depends on how he reacts to the physical demands that will be placed on him as to how quickly we will see him back."
Seaborne played a key role in Saints' promotion from League One last season, featuring in 28 games in all competitions.
