Connor Wickham is said to be closing in on a return to action following a series of setbacks in his recovery from a serious knee injury.
The Crystal Palace striker has been sidelined since rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament back in November 2016, and despite several false dawns, Roy Hodgson is confident Wickham will be back this season. "Connor did break down in training and that was because of his enthusiasm and his desire to push on," the Eagles boss revealed. "He's always fighting, or was always fighting, the medical people that he can do more, [that] he should be at a different level and should be playing already. They told him to be careful, and of course what happened was he did push on and he did stretch their patience - they let him loose a little bit and he pulled his calf." But, now he’s back out on the training pitches, his knee is fine, and it’s envisaged that Wickham will feature for the U23s before being considered for the first-team which will hopefully be in April.
