Brentford’s Sergi Canos has missed over four months of football.
The Spaniard suffered a serious knee injury in October which required surgery, but is closing in on his return to action and could well feature again before the season’s out.
Canos, 23, is a favourite at Griffin Park. He’s in his third full-season at Brentford and has already made well over 100 appearances for the club, having spent the 2015/16 season on-loan from Liverpool as well.
But in 2016 he swapped Liverpool for Norwich in a permanent deal which didn’t work out, but Brentford gave him refuge once again and there he’s remained ever since.
Now over four months since his last appearances for Brentford, the club have posted these images on Twitter showing his recovery:

Thomas Frank’s side currently sit 4th in the Championship table – two points off Leeds United after the pair drew 1-1 in midweek.
Promotion is very much on the cards for the Bees this season and with a new stadium on the horizon, the club would love nothing more than to welcome Premier League football in their maiden season at the Brentford Community Stadium.

The return of Canos, hopefully before the end of the season, will give Frank a huge boost.
He’s a tricky player who can play in a number of positions, and will provide some much-needed back-up to the likes of Said Benrahma and Ollie Watkins, who’ve played almost every game for Brentford this season.
Everyone at the club knows of Canos’ ability, and it was hard for fans to see such a talented young player suffer the injury he did. But he’ll be back stronger and eager to work his way back into the side, and hopefully help Brentford on their way to the Premier League.
