The winger snapped up from Crystal Palace in the summer picked up the injury in our Premiership opener at Portsmouth and hasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t kicked a ball since.
It was a real blow for the England Under-21 international after a number of impressive performances in pre-season.
Having spent a period of time with his right foot in a protective boot, Wayne is now back on his feet, so to speak.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I started running last week, little jogs and IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve progressed to 10-minute jogs, accelerating, twisting and turning,Ã¢â‚¬Â he reported. Ã¢â‚¬Å“ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s going well. Working with the ball is the next step and then playing games.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s been a long drawn-out process but hopefully it wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t be too much longer. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s all going fine at the moment.Ã¢â‚¬Â
