Wycombe midfielder Matt Bloomfield is nearing a return to training following a long-term injury lay-off.
Bloomfield has not featured since last August when he was diagnosed with a pelvic shear, but has now stepped up his rehabilitation as his team-mates return for pre-season training.
He told the club's official website: "I'm pleased with the progress I've made over the past couple of months and I'm heading in the right direction.
"I'm increasing my workload day on day and I can't wait to get back out there with the lads."
Bloomfield recently signed a new deal to keep him with the Chairboys, taking him into his testimonial year.
He joined from Ipswich in December 2003 and has amassed 289 appearances in his time at Adams Park.
Wycombe have received another boost with the news that striker Matt McClure will return to training from a knee injury in three weeks' time.
