Bafana and Montpellier star has recovered from knee injury.
South African attacking midfielder Keagan Dolly has returned to training at Ligue 1 club Montpellier following knee surgery.
The 25-year-old Bafana Bafana star has been sidelined since September when he fractured his fibula against Strasbourg in the French top flight.
"I've returned to training and it feels good to be back," Dolly told BBC Sport.
"Everything has gone well in terms of recovery and I made a positive return to training last week.
"The process [rehabilitation, training and regaining match fitness] is all part of football and you just have to keep a positive outlook."
Dolly’s return could be a boost for South Africa in their quest to book a ticket to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
Stuart Baxter’s team will qualify for the tournament if they avoid defeat away to Libya in their final group stage qualifier in March.
Dolly has been on Montpellier’s books since January 2017, having signed from Mamelodi Sundowns after helping the Tshwane club win the CAF Champions League the previous year.
