Jason Koumas has praised new club Cardiff City for helping him regain his fitness.
The midfielder joined The Bluebirds on a season-long loan from West Brom but was hampered by a muscular strain during his early weeks at Ninian Park.
However, he has now started Cardiff's last three games and came off the bench to make a decent cameo against England on Sunday.
The 25-year-old believes he is approaching something like full fitness now and paid tribute to the coaching staff at Cardiff for helping him get back on track.
"I've had to pack a lot of hard work into a short space of time and Cardiff City's back-room staff have helped tremendously," he stated.
"I've now played three full matches for Cardiff and my fitness is certainly returning."
Meanwhile, Cardiff striker Andy Campbell has revealed he would be keen to make his loan switch to Oxford United permanent.
The former Middlesbrough hit-man has endured a difficult couple of seasons in Wales and is hoping that a move to League Two will see him begin to find the net with regularity again.
"I've come here to kick-start myself and to kick-start Oxford," he explained.
"It's been a disappointing time for me at Cardiff lately, but dropping down to League Two is not a problem for me.
"If I can score enough goals for Oxford, maybe this move will turn into something longer."
