Super Eagles forward Aaron Samuel will return from a long-term knee injury in January, his agent has disclosed.
“Everything is going well with Aaron’s rehabilitation and he is expected back in action in January,” the player’s agent Atta Aneke said.
The 22-year-old Samuel suffered a meniscus injury while playing for CSKA Moscow in the Russian Cup final against Zenit St Petersburg in late April, but only went under the knife in June at a specialist hospital in Germany.
The former Shooting Stars forward has been recovering at his former base of Norway, but has now returned to Nigeria on holidays.
He played last season for CSKA Moscow on loan from Chinese club Guangzhou R&F.
