Birmingham City boss Garry Monk has revealed that David Davis could return to training next month as he recovers from an ankle injury.
The all-action midfielder, who has been an important player for Blues over the years, fractured his ankle during the summer and was set for a long lay-off.
Whilst that has been the case, he is progressing nicely, with Monk telling the official site that he is stepping up his workload ahead of potentially training in the New Year.
“It’s gone to plan for David at this moment in time. It will probably be the end of January when he could possibly return into some of the training.
“He’s in the most critical moment now he’s back out on the grass. This is where you go from the controlled environment inside to a little bit more variable in terms of movements and things like that. But he’s done fantastically up to this point.”
The 27-year-old obviously hasn’t played as a result of that this season and will be desperate to link up with this impressive Blues side.
A 3-0 win over Preston last time out took the side to ninth in the table, just four points away from the play-offs ahead of Saturday’s home game against Bristol City.
This is very good news for Blues as Davis has proven himself to be a very good player for the side over the years.
As well as that, he brings an energy and threat to the midfield that is sometimes lacking, even though Gary Gardner has been a good signing by Monk.
Now though, it’s about ensuring he doesn’t rush anything and comes back at 100% to play a part in what could be an exciting end to the season.
