Vermaelen set for Arsenal return

Arsenal have been boosted by the news that Belgian defender Thomas Vermaelen is back in full training, the club’s official website revealed.

Vermaelen signed a new four year deal earlier in the week and he is an integral part of an Arsenal defence that is starting to show signs of promise. The Belgian could be back on November 5th to face West Brom and that is a welcome boost for Wenger. Wenger said: ‘Vermaelen will be back in full training on Friday. It is 10 days to two weeks for him.’ Midfielder Abou Diaby is a long way away from full fitness after struggling with an ankle problem. Defender Carl Jenkinson has also been ruled out of the weekend’s fixture after a knee injury in the midweek Champions League tie against Marseille.
