Albion striker Florin Andone looks set to get his first piece of action since June 2020.

The 27-year-old has been recovering from a ruptured cruciate ligament in his knee he suffered whilst on loan at Turkish side Galatasaray.

Head coach Graham Potter confirmed that he had been back training with the group last week and he confirmed in his press conference this afternoon that the Romanian international is set to get a run out for the U23s tomorrow afternoon against Southampton.

He said: “He has been out for a long time, so he had a problem with his knee.

“He has worked really hard to be back in the group and training with the group and he is due to get some game time with the U23s in the next day or so, which is positive for us.

“From there it is just about taking the right steps to allow him to get that match fitness because he has been out for around nine months now.

“So it is not so easy to go into a Premier League game, but the focus is now to get him up to speed, getting match time, keep building it up and then go from there.”

Andone will be hoping to fare better than the last time he faced Southampton, after being sent off 30 minutes in their 2-0 defeat to the Saints at the Amex in August 2019.
