Nigeria international Victor Anichebe is expected to return to action for English Premier League (EPL) club Sunderland next month.
Sunderland manager David Moyes has provided an update on the striker, who has been out nursing his injury since January 2017.
“We’ve sent Victor to work with a specialist in America and he should be back shortly – this weekend (18-19 March) or next weekend I think, ” Moyes told the club's official website.
“He’s running and he’s back on it so we felt that sending him to someone who can work one-on-one with him constantly [was the best option], and it looks like it’s working.
“My aim was to get him back for as much of April as I can, and I can’t guarantee that at the moment but we’re doing everything we can.”
The 28-year-old bulky forward netted three goals in 11 league appearances before sustaining an injury two months ago.
