Neeskens Kebano was pictured returning to training with his Fulham team mates at Motspur Park this afternoon – raising hopes that he could be back in action before the end of the season.

The popular winger had an impressive start to the Premier League campaign cruelly cut short by an achilles injury that he sustained during training in November. The DR Congo international had made twelve appearances and become a regular in Marco Silva’s side that was already beating the dismal pre-season predictions before his devastating injury and had been expected to miss the remainder of the domestic campaign.

The 31 year-old, who has scored 24 goals in 155 games during his seven years at Craven Cottage, could give Fulham a significant boost by proving his fitness in the final few weeks of the season when the Whites are expected to be without striker Aleksandar Mitrovic and Silva, who are anticipating being hit with suspensions in the aftermath of the FA Cup defeat at Manchester United earlier this month.
