Brighton midfielder Alan Navarro is set to return to full training later this month.
The 29-year-old has been on the sidelines since suffering a ruptured cruciate ligament in August, but he is on course to play a part in the Seagulls' promotion push.
"Alan is training really well at the moment," said assistant boss Mauricio Taricco.
"He is looking strong and when he becomes available again he will be like a new signing to us.
"I watched him running and doing his fitness work earlier in the week and he looks strong, so hopefully at the end of this month he will be joining in with us."
