.West Ham forward Diafra Sakho will return to training on Monday.
The 27-year-old has been out for four months after having surgery on a back injury.
He also suffered a hamstring problem in the draw with Manchester United last November, which was his most recent appearance.
Sakho will train with the U23 squad for two weeks before re-joining the first-team squad in April, should he maintain his fitness.
The Hammers expect the Senegal international to be ready to play by the middle of next month, possibly for the trip to Sunderland on April 15.
Sakho has only made two appearances for the club this season, having wanted to leave the London Stadium last summer.
Sakho refused to travel on the club's pre-season tour and also handed in a transfer request after interest from West Brom, Sunderland, Hamburg and Sevilla.
