Vermaelen receives all-clear to play for Barcelona

Thomas Vermaelen has been given the all-clear by doctors to join first team training at Barcelona.

The former Arsenal captain is yet to get close to the senior team since arriving in the summer due to hamstring problems.

But Vermaelen was given the medical all-clear following Sunday morning's workout at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper.

He will now be fully available for Luis Enrique in the home stretch of the season.
