Nâ€™Zogbia has not kicked a ball for the claret and blues this season after rupturing his achilles while keeping fit on holiday in Miami during the summer.
"I always have an open mind,â€ť said Lambert. â€śWeâ€™ll see what happens in January but we need to get his injury cleared up first.
â€śI think an achilles heel is a bad injury. When you get that sometimes youâ€™re better off just breaking your leg because you can come back quicker than an achilles heel. Itâ€™s just a horrible injury to get, so we just have to see.
â€śHeâ€™s still a way bit off. Itâ€™s still a bit of a long-term one. I wouldnâ€™t have thought the whole season but it will still be long term.
â€śWe need every player to be fit."
