Ousmane Dembele has taken another step closer to making his return from injury after doing some work with the ball at the training ground on Thursday.

The French forward returned to the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper on Monday, after having treatment in Qatar, and is closing in on a return to first-team action.

It’s still not entirely clear when he can expect to see Dembele back out on the pitch for the champions.

He was originally ruled out for 10 weeks at the end of November which suggests he should be ready to make his return some time in February.
