Connor Wickham is closing in on a first-team return for Crystal Palace following a 17-month spell on the sidelines.
The 25-year-old ruptured his cruciate ligaments against Swansea City in November 2016 and has not featured for the Eagles' senior side since then.
After a successful comeback with the club's Under-23s, however, the ex-Ipswich Town and Sunderland striker can now see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Speaking to reporters on Thursday afternoon prior to this weekend's Premier League meeting with Leicester City, Palace boss Roy Hodgson confirmed that Wickham is back involved with the first team.
Wickham has scored seven league goals for Palace since joining in 2015, making 29 appearances in that time.
