Marco van Ginkel excited as he's set for Chelsea training return

Marco van Ginkel is set to return to training at Chelsea.

Van Ginkel is set to finally return to action after 18 months out injured.

The Dutch international had spent two-and-a-half years on loan at PSV Eindhoven in the Eredivisie. His last appearance, however, came in a 0-0 draw with Groningen on May 6 2018, as he skippered PSV to the title.

Disaster struck soon after, when he was forced to have knee surgery after a horror ACL injury.

Yesterday, he wrote on his Instagram account: "After more than a year, finally back on the pitch.

"For most players it is normal to be training outside, but I had some setbacks during my recovery which was really frustrating.

"I am working hard every day, not there yet but it is getting closer now."
