The Gunners provided an update on Dani Ceballos on Thursday, revealing when the midfielder could return to training ahead of the clash with Southampton in the Premier League.

Arsenal will once again be looking to get back on track when they face Southampton at home in the league on Saturday.

Last season, one of Unai Emery’s biggest worries was injuries to key players, but the Gunners boss has actually been more fortunate in that department this term.

Heading into the clash with the Saints, Dani Ceballos remains the only first team player who is guaranteed to miss the game after the injury he suffered in the Europa League prior to the international break.

The Gunners had not been able to reveal how long the 23-year-old would remain on the sidelines as his injury was being assessed.

But ahead of the Southampton fixture this weekend, the club’s medical staff is saying that Ceballos is expected to be back in training in December.

“Left hamstring. Sustained during the Vitoria SC (a) match on November 6. Aiming to return to full training mid-December.” the Gunners’ official website said
