Alejandro Faurlin is happy with the progress of his recovery from the knee injury that brought an early end to his 2011/12 season.
The QPR midfielder ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament in an FA Cup tie with MK Dons in January.
The 25-year-old was immediately ruled out for the rest of the campaign and has undergone rehabilitation work both in Spain and with his club.
He made an immediate impact after moving to QPR from Instituto in 2009, being named as the club's player of the season by both fans and team-mates.
Having spent more time with world-renowned knee surgeon Roman Cugat in Spain, Faurlin is confident about his prospects of making a complete recovery soon.
"I went to Spain so he could have a look at the knee," he said. "He (Cugat) was happy. The knee has recovered well, so now it's about building up the muscle around it.
"For me it was good to see him and hear that everything is still going well. I'm really excited about playing again."
