Arsenal striker Jeremie Aliadiere has stepped up his rehabilitation.Arsenal striker Jeremie Aliadiere has returned to North London to step up his rehabilitation from a serious knee injury.
The promising French starlet picked up the injury when coming on as a second half substitute in Arsenal's Community Shield win over Manchester United in August.
Arsenal chief Arsene Wenger was initially hopeful that his compatriot would only be out for a matter of weeks, but scans revealed serious damage to the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee.
Aliadiere had undergone treatment in his homeland but the 21-year-old has now returned to London.
''I did it (rehabilitation work) at Clairefontaine with the federation doctors,'' confirmed Aliadiere.
''Since Sunday night I am in London and on Monday, I resumed work with the Arsenal fitness coach.
''Everything is fine. I am holding on.''
