Arsene Wenger has declared Tomas Rosicky fit to play with the midfielder expected to feature for the club’s youth team on Friday.

The Czech star has been sidelined since June last year following a knee injury he suffered on international duty before undergoing  surgery.

Several setbacks have delayed the 35-year-old’s return but Rosicky has finally been cleared to resume action on the pitch.

“It is possible Rosicky will play in the under-21 game [on Friday]. He was a bit sick at the beginning of the week but we planned for him to play tomorrow night.” the Arsenal boss said

“We have a few players coming back because we go into a very important period now for us.”

UPDATE: Rosicky was able to feature for 45 minutes as Arsenal’s boys drew 0-0 at home to Swansea today.

Rumours are suggesting that the former Dortmund man could make his return with the first team in the FA Cup tie against Burnley.

Here were a few shots of Rosicky in action…

After nearly ten years at the club, Rosicky could say goodbye to the Gunners at the end of this season with his current contract set to expire in June.
