Eberechi Eze has provided Crystal Palace fans with the latest update on his recovery from his long-term injury.
The 23-year-old playmaker, who was a standout performer for the Eagles last season under Roy Hodgson, ruptured his Achilles tendon during training back in May, and has since been on the sidelines recovering.
Eze had only arrived at Palace the previous summer, joining from Queens Park Rangers for a fee that will eventually total £20million and making 34 Premier League appearances in his debut campaign.
His injury came just before England were due to announce their provisional squad for Euro 2020, and to add to his misery Eze found out upon his return to the dressing room at the training ground that his name was on the provisional 33-man list for the tournament.
A lot has changed at Crystal Palace since his injury, with Patrick Vieira coming in as manager to replace Hodgson, and a number of players both leaving and arriving at the club.
Vieira has not put a date on Eze’s return to first-team action yet, but on Tuesday evening the player posted a video of himself training with a ball at the club’s Copers Cope base in Bromley alongside a sand timer emoji.
Eze can be seen doing some light sprints between cones before making some passes with one of his coaches afterwards.
These are encouraging scenes for Crystal Palace supporters, who will be excited to see how Eze fits into Vieira’s new attacking and possession-based team.
