Ousmane Dembele was back at the training ground on Thursday as the Frenchman closes in on a return to fitness after a recent hamstring injury.

The 23-year-old has been out of action since picking up a problem in the shock 2-1 defeat to Cadiz in La Liga after coming on as a substitute at half-time.

Dembele won’t play against Valencia this weekend but there’s a chance he could feature against Real Valladolid next week or possibly the clash against Eibar on December 29, according to AS.

The Frenchman’s return will be a welcome boost ahead of another packed month of fixtures in January. Barca play five times in La Liga and also take on Real Sociedad in the Spanish Super Cup.
