World number eight Jo-Wilfried Tsonga will return from injury at next week's Metz Open.

Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga will make his return from a knee injury at the Metz Open next week.

The world number eight will be the top seed at the indoor event, and tournament manager Yvon Boutter has revealed that Tsonga is keen to regain some form before the end of the year.

Boutter told AFP: "He's chosen to return indoors at Metz because the end of the season is played on this surface.

"He has points to defend and the Masters in his sights. He's on top form."

Tsonga has not played since withdrawing from his second-round encounter with Ernest Gulbis at Wimbledon in June.
