Albrighton has yet to feature under manager Paul Lambert this term after suffering a stress fracture to his foot during pre-season training.
However, he returned to training on Sunday and is now eager to get back on the pitch with the rest of his Villa team-mates.
"It's been so frustrating. It's dragged out like it's been years," Albrighton told the club's official website.
"But it's going well now. I started training on Sunday and I did some more training on Tuesday. Hopefully I will have a couple of weeks to get sharp and then I can get going again.
"I have been doing full training with the group. I had a few sessions with the fitness coach and the physios previously and it went fine. Touch wood, I'm back now.
"It's a dream to be back. Watching the lads over the last couple of games has been fantastic. But there's nothing like playing."
