Hull City forward Richard Garcia is hoping to return to training in late October after his knee injury.
The Australia international has not played yet this season after picking up the knock during the summer, but is optimistic of a return to action soon.
"It's probably just another couple of weeks before I start training and then it's just about getting fit," he told the club's official website.
"It's been very frustrating. It's not nice sitting on the sidelines, especially when it's nice outside and everyone's training and you're stuck inside.
"I just want to come back and add something to the team. Hopefully I can do that."
The 28-year-old attacker started 13 Premier League games for the Tigers last term, netting one goal against Blackburn Rovers.
