The fullback has recovered from a horrific ankle injury suffered at the beginning of the season.
Laudrup said: "Physically he is quite close to being back.
"He has trained with us for some weeks, but we all know match fitness is a different level and only by coming back will he get that.
"The physical part is one thing, the mental part is another after a triple fracture, which is quite an injury.
"I am happy he's back and let's see when he can come in and make his comeback."
