"The difficult part will be to get him back in the football side of it," the manager said. "I say 'difficult' because we've not really seen him operate at this moment in time. We're relying on information we're getting from the States.
"We're certain of one thing, his fitness will be good, his endurance work will have been done, we will just have to gauge when the right time is to put him into the football side of it. You don't have a player who has been out for over a year and suddenly throw him into the fire right away. I think we'll be taking our time."
