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.
