Ben Turner closing in on Cardiff City return

Cardiff City defender Ben Turner reveals that he is nearly back to full fitness following an ankle injury.

Cardiff City defender Ben Turner has revealed that he is closing in on a return to full fitness.

The 26-year-old has not featured for the Bluebirds this season due to an ankle injury that he picked up in the summer.

Following a period of rehabilitation, Turner expects to be back in the first-team squad at the Cardiff City Stadium in the next couple of weeks.

"I'm back in full training and a reserve friendly will be played either on Friday or Monday," he told Wales Online. "After that I would hope to be available to play at Championship level.

"My ankle is okay now and I came through a personal fitness schedule for a couple of weeks before I joined in with squad training. I've been back out on the pitch for three or four weeks now."

Cardiff are currently in 15th place in the Championship table.
