Marc Albrighton close to Aston Villa return

Aston Villa winger Marc Albrighton admits his delight after returning to training with the club.

Aston Villa winger Marc Albrighton has revealed that he is close to returning to first-team action with the club.

The 22-year-old is yet to feature this season after injuring his foot in pre-season, but returned to training on Sunday.

"It's been so frustrating. It's dragged out like it's been years. But it's going well now. I started training on Sunday and I did some more training on Tuesday. Hopefully I will have a couple of weeks to get sharp and then I can get going again," Albrighton told the club's official website.

"I have been doing full training with the group. I had a few sessions with the fitness coach and the physios previously and it went fine. Touch wood, I'm back now. It's a dream to be back. Watching the lads over the last couple of games has been fantastic. But there's nothing like playing."

Albrighton made 29 appearances for Villa last season.
