Aston Villa have been boosted by the news that Keinan Davis has stepped up his recovery from a groin operation.
Davis is yet to turn out for Villa this season after struggling with a groin injury, which was ultimately operated on in the middle of October.
It is unlikely that Davis will be available for selection until the latter stages of 2018, and it might well be the New Year before the attacker is seen in a Villa shirt again.
The forward is back on the training field, however, and he will certainly be looking to contribute in the second half of the campaign.
The 6ft 3in forward joined Villa in 2015, and made seven first-team appearances for the club during the 2016-17 campaign.
Last term, Davis scored three times in 30 appearances in all competitions, and certainly showed that he can be a threat.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the Villa fans in relation to Davis’ return can be seen below:
Wish him all the best and that but he is so far down pecking order. A loan for 6 months to see what he can do is best imo
