Roma head coach Rudi Garcia has confirmed that one-club man Francesco Totti is back in training.
The 39-year-old has been out of action since late September because of a knee injury.
However, Garcia has revealed that if no setbacks are suffered, the veteran attacker should return to the squad next month.
"He trained with the group. When he's more focused on the ball he'll think less about the injury. His return is expected in January, but he's improving and we hope he'll be with us," the boss told the club's official website.
Totti has found the net once from his three outings this term.
