Now after returning to training, Fontaine cannot wait to get back into the first-team fold.
"I've been getting back into training with pitch work and ball work," he told the club's official website. "I'm desperate to be back involved with the lads again.
"When you're out for so long you feel out of the loop.
"I've still been following the games and cheering the lads on but I just want to get back to it now. I'm lonely!"
