Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna is nearing a return to full training following a lengthy-spell on the sidelines.

Sagna suffered a broken leg during October's north London derby defeat to Tottenham at White Hart Lane, and was immediately required to have surgery.

Arsene Wenger said in December that he expected to have the France international available for selection by the end of January, and Sagna has confirmed he is on schedule.

"I was told I would spend three or four months out and I am on schedule," Sagna told L'Equipe.

"I have resumed jogging and I should kick the ball again in the coming days.

"I have screws (in my leg) but I don't think I will have them removed. That would mean another two months on the sidelines."

Sagna's comeback will serve as a welcome boost for Wenger, with his Arsenal squad currently depleted with defensive injuries.

Along with Sagna, Thomas Vermaelen, Kieran Gibbs, Andre Santos and Carl Jenkinson are also out of action, while Johan Djourou is suspended.
