Barcelona B midfielder Oriol Busquets has been cleared to return to action after recovering from knee surgery.

The 19-year-old, who signed a new three-year deal in July, has been given the green light to feature after being out of action since February.

He could even feature at the weekend, as he’s been included in the squad for Saturday’s match against Conquense.

Ernesto Valverde spoke at the end of last season of wanting to promote Busquets and Carles Alena to the first team.

The injury was undoubtedly a setback for the teenager, but hopefully he can get back to his best now after a tough spell.
