And with Alex Song also likely to join the lads for the clash against the Welsh outfit, that will leave just Diafra Sakho on the injured list – albeit for another month.
Sources inside the Boleyn have revealed to ClaretandHugh that the Ecuador international is now very much on the mend and although Tuesday evening’s clash against West Brom will come too soon for him, a return against Swansea looks “very likely.”
One insider said: “He and Songy look on for the game but there’s real fury still over the Saho injury – it was unforgivable. There’s no chance of the club getting any compensation at all.”
There was a rumour circulating last night that Sakho’s could be back well in advance of the speculated four weeks but manager Sam Allardyce has regularly maintained he has no chance of returning within four weeks.
