Summer signing Conor Coady has confirmed that he is now back in training as he steps up his recovery from a fractured foot.

After arriving at Leicester City in the summer, the defender picked up the injury during pre-season which has prevented him making his debut for the club. But that could come soon.

After spending the early weeks in a protective boot and watching from the sidelines, Coady is now getting close to a return. He was due back in training in the week just gone, and it seems that that has been the case.

The 30-year-old has been spotted taking part in rondos with his teammates in clips released by the club during the week, much to the delight of fans on social media. Whether Friday night’s game will comes too early remains to be seen, but it seems he is getting closer to making his long-awaited debut for the club.

Ahead of the game, Coady himself gave an update, confirming that he is ‘back on the grass’. The defender also confirmed that he did suffer a fractured foot.

“It happened two weeks into pre-season, I was gutted,” he told BBC5Live’s Monday Night Club. “It was something that I tried to play through it a little bit but then realised there was something wrong, I ended up with a fracture in my foot.
“I’ve never been injured before, so to come here and get it when I did was shocking timing if I’m being completely honest, but it’s something now I’m looking forward. I’m back on the grass now with the boys, I’m training, I’m feeling good, I’m feeling strong, and hopefully we can attack the season now as much as we can.”
