Richard Dunne returns to training with Aston Villa following a two-month absence with a broken collarbone.

Aston Villa defender Richard Dunne has returned to training following a two-month spell on the sidelines.

The Republic of Ireland international has been forced to sit out Villa's matches since early February with a broken collarbone.

However, the centre-back has now returned to training and could play a role in the club's remaining fixtures.

"It's good news regarding Richard," manager Alex McLeish told reporters. "He has rejoined the group for training today."

Villa take on Bolton Wanderers tomorrow evening.
