Ex- Norwich striker Van Wolfswinkel in Basel training after brain aneurysm treatment

Former Norwich City striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel has returned to full training with Basel seven months after beginning treatment for a brain aneurysm.

The condition was only discovered in August after the 31-year-old had scans following a concussion.

"The therapy went according to plan," read a statement on the Basel website.

The ex-Norwich striker posted a video of his return to training on social media, along with the caption: "I am. Back. Ready. Proud. Lets do this!"
