The Czech Republic international, who is also capable of doing a job at right-back, has had to watch on from the stands since August 24th, when Kalas tore his hamstring in a 3-1 victory over Hull City.
The defender now looks like he is over his early-season injury and could be set for a return to the Bristol City team when he’s fully fit, the former Fulham loanee well liked by Robins manager Lee Johnson.
Kalas originally signed on loan from Chelsea last season and made 41 appearances for the South Bristol side, forming a solid partnership at centre-back with Adam Webster, who moved to Brighton & Hove Albion in the summer, before signing permanently for Bristol City in the summer just gone, signing a four-year contract.
Does Kalas start when fully fit for Bristol City?
Kalas lists Sigma Olomouc, Vitesse, FC Koln, Middlesbrough and Fulham as his previous clubs while on loan from Chelsea, having joined the Premier League side from boyhood club Sigma Olomouc back in 2010 at the age of 17.
Johnson will be delighted to have the 26 year-old back in training and almost available for games having been crucial over the past 15 months during his time at Ashton Gate.
Kalas could slot into the back two or back three seamlessly when Johnson decides to pick the former Chelsea man again, and City fans will be just as excited to see their Czech powerhouse back out on the pitch.
