The winger has been sidelined by a foot injury since the opening weekend of the campaign, missing 11 matches in all competitions since that win at Palace.

“I’m extremely happy, it’s been a long time out for a player of Aaron’s importance and the team is delighted with his return,” said Andre.

“He’s proved year after year how important he is for us and to have him back is a major plus.”

As for his return to first team action, with our next match at Villa on Sunday week, October 20, Andre added: “Let’s see how he works on the international break.

“Azza has kept his fitness very high with our medical department."
