Valencia have been boosted with the news that Asier Del Horno is set for a return.
Valencia defender Asier Del Horno is set to make his comeback from injury in his side's weekend clash with Gimnastic.
The former-Chelsea player is yet to play for the Liga side since his move last summer, but now says he is ready for first-team football.
"I believe this is the right moment," he said.
"I am perfect in the physical aspect and very excited. I've lived a nightmare and at first, the doctors did not say the date for a complete recovery.
"I am not ready for 90 minutes, but that is the decision of the coach."
Del Horno has been training with the first-team squad for the first time since his switch to the Mestalla and the news of his return to fitness will undoubtedly be a boost for the title-chasers.
