Chris Hughton believes few players work harder than Jamie Redknapp to get back to fitness.
The midfielder is on the verge of a first team return after four months out with a knee injury.
He's played four reserve team games and the full 90 minutes against Southampton last time out.
Chris, who did extra training sessions with Jamie in Dubai, said: "I think where Jamie has done well is by working through his injuries and always keeping in great shape.
"I doubt there is anyone who works harder than he does to get fit again.
"Sometimes when players have a certain injury that keeps them out for a while then they can get muscle wastage but that isn't the case with Jamie because he's worked incredibly hard to keep himself in the right shape."
