Chelsea loanee Lucas Piazon back in Fulham training

Lucas Piazon, on loan at Fulham from Chelsea, is close to a first-team return after taking part in training this week.

Fulham have been handed a potential fitness boost ahead of their busy festive programme as Chelsea loanee Lucas Piazon has returned to training.

The 23-year-old has been absent since breaking his leg in the goalless draw with Leeds United in August, restricting him to just three appearances to date in his second season at Craven Cottage.

Former Brazil Under-23s international Piazon will soon be back in first-team contention, however, having stepped up his recovery with a return to the training ground on Tuesday afternoon.

Piazon was in good form prior to suffering the injury, having scored against Wycombe Wanderers and former club Reading in two of his three outings.
