Barcelona confirmed on Sunday that Ousmane Dembele is back in full training ahead of Tuesday’s trip to Real Valladolid.

The Frenchman has been out since picking up a hamstring problem after coming off the bench in the defeat to Cadiz.

Dembele has missed Barca’s last four games in all competitions but should come into contention next time out at the José Zorrilla Stadium.

Barca head into the match in need of a win after Saturday’s disappointing draw at home to Valencia, and Dembele’s return will offer Ronald Koeman another option in attack.

The Barca forward line has lacked a spark in recent games, with Dembele and Ansu Fati out injured, and the 23-year-old’s return will be a welcome boost ahead of a crucial game.
