Diaby Set For Arsenal Return

Arsenal's promising midfielder Abu Diaby is set to return to training in January after missing the last 8 months with a broken and dislocated ankle.

Daiby, 20, suffered the injury after a Dan Smith horror tackle late in a game that Sunderland were losing 3-1.

At one point it was feared that Diaby would never recover enough to play top flight football and legal action was considered.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger now says that the towering Frenchman is close to making his return to training.

Speaking to Arsenal.com Wenger said: 'We plan for Abou to come back to full training at the beginning of January

'We will hopefully see him playing games at the end of January.'

Since Le boss said that Diaby has been penciled in to return on January 5th.

Well all wish daiby well and hope to see him back in action as soon as possible.

Can't wait to see him play again. Reminds me so much of the '98 PV4!

will be good to see him back, so we start 2007 stronger with alk the players coming back !

we always improve aftr Xmas come what may. The fact that we have players returning makes it even more mouth watering! If Diaby comes back and does well then it could lead to Wenger deciding not to get Baptista on a permanant deal.

Diaby showed good promise before that ridiculous tackle by that Sunderland player. I hope that injury isnt a permanent detriment to his ability. Dunno about him being a No.2 tho????

He's a good player overall.. he just needs time on the field in the premiership to get adjusted.. i think we have a PV in the making.. hope he reaches those standards..

i must admit, i have not been extremely impressed with abou so far. but these are early days yet, and the kid needs time to settle down and show us what he's made of. hopefully, he can play an important role in the long-term for us.

i have been very impressed by Abou. he has had some terrific moments in the few games he has played, and he has a huge amount of potential. In my opinion, if he works hard, he can be a player of an even higher quality than Viera.
