But as a huge boost for the Potters for the clash against Albion this weekend, the Frenchman has revealed that he could return to the starting lineup for the game.
Asked if he could play, he said: "I think so, I hope so, let's see Saturday how I feel, but I think so. I want to play and I need to play. I am not here to be injured.
"I tried to play the most games I can, that's why I came here. Unfortunately I got my injury, but it wasn't for too long and now I feel ok."
