Hearts have been boosted by news that defender Robin Gnagne will be available for their Premier League home game against Berekum Chelsea on Sunday.
The Ivorian import has begun full scale training with the capital-based side after recuperating from an injury.
The strong centre-back has not been involved in their last two games after he dislocated his shoulder during their 3-2 win at Inter Allies.
But he says he feels fully fit and will be ready for selection against the Blues in front of their home fans.
“I feel no pains in my shoulder,” Gnagne told the club’s official website
“It was a very painful experience, especially on the day I got the injury. But I think the pain is no more.
“I can run freely and I am ready for the season again.”
“I hope to be part of the team for the next game and I am working hard to regain selection into the team.” the former Red Bull Academy graduate added.
Gnagne’s return is expected to boost the defense of the capital-based side ahead of the visit of the former League champions.
