Aston Villa central defender Richard Dunne has set his sights on a return to training in two weeks after undergoing a second operation on his long-term groin problem.
Dunne has been sidelined since initially suffering the setback with the Republic of Ireland during their Euro 2012 campaign and has not played since. But the 33-year-old, who is in the final year of his contract, is finally hoping there is light at the end of the tunnel.
"The last operation I had seems to have really worked so I'm hopeful that I'll be back soon," Dunne told the Birmingham Mail.
