Vermaelen on way back at Arsenal

Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen is edging closer to a return to full fitness.

The Arsenal skipper aggravated a back problem in the summer and missed the start of the season.

But he could be available to face West Brom in the Capital One Cup clash at The Hawthorns later this month.

He said: "The West Brom game is a few weeks away yet and hopefully I will be closer to a return.

"I can't put a date on my comeback. But I am really happy with how things are going so far."
