Gini Wijnaldum is nearing a highly-anticipated return to the pitch since suffering a serious tibia fracture in late August.

The Dutch midfielder was finally able to complete his first group training session earlier today in Albufeira where Roma are spending their mid-season international break.

With only one more friendly left to go and after having shown steady progress over recent weeks, Jose Mourinho invited the ex-Liverpool man to train with the rest of the team with the hope of having him at full disposal in January.
