Posting on his Instagram story at the weekend, Jordi Osei-Tutu confirmed that he’s back in Cardiff as he prepares to restart his loan spell with Cardiff City. He’s reportedly due to start training with the team again this week.

Wales Online speculate that the right-back might get a run-out with the Cardiff City u23s against Watford on Tuesday if he’s ready for one. They add that he was “terrific” before the injury, and his absence was a “mighty blow” to the side.

However, the same outlet also mentions that January signing Perry Ng has nailed down the right-back spot in Osei-Tutu’s absence, so it might be hard to break back in.

Cardiff City are certainly on a run of good results, pushing their way up to 8th in the Championship having been as low as 18th in late November and 15th as recently as last month.

Osei-Tutu initially picked up a minor hamstring problem in mid-October, but after a one-game absence, he seemingly aggravated the issue in his next appearance, suffering a much more serious hamstring injury.

It only got worse in January, when the 22-year-old had a setback in his recovery, reinjuring himself. Finally, it looks like he’s closing in on a return to full fitness.
