Marco van Ginkel is delighted with his recovery from knee surgery at Chelsea.

The midfielder is now training with the senior squad after playing several friendlies with underage teams.

"Through Under-16, Under-18 and the last with the Under-21s, I am finally back," Van Ginkel told De Telegraaf.

"During the week, I was already training with a couple of guys from the first team.

"I realize that in the championship race, every game is important and that my return may be more difficult. I continue to work hard to come back."
