West Ham midfielder Jack Collison is hoping he can soon make his return to action.
The 23-year-old has struggled throughout his career with injuries and he has not played this season due to a knee issue which has dogged him for a couple of years.
Collison managed to play a major part in the Championship promotion campaign last term and the Wales international is anxious to taste Premier League football again.
"I'm pretty much there or thereabouts," said Collison.
"I just need to get some minutes under my belt."
