Lucas Leiva says that he is "happy" to be edging closer to a return to full fitness for Liverpool following his three-month layoff with a knee injury.

Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva has expressed his delight in taking part in training this week as the Brazilian steps up his return to action.

The 25-year-old has been sidelined for the Reds since August after picking up a thigh injury during Liverpool's 2-2 draw with Manchester City at Anfield.

"Happy to be back and feeling good," Lucas tweeted. "Just get some more training session and I hope I will be available soon."

Lucas missed the majority of last season with a cruciate ligament injury.
