Southampton and England striker Jay Rodriguez has confirmed that the recovery from his anterior cruciate ligament injury that he sustained last season is going well.

Posting on his official website the Southampton striker who fell awkwardly against Manchester City at The Etihad stadium during the tail end of last season, showed his progress with a video of himself in various exercises.

The news will be another huge boost to the Southampton fans, after a summer of trouble with the departures of some of the club's key players, and the news will also be a boost to England manager Roy Hodgson.

Rehabilitation progress

In the video, which is sub-titled "Week 4 of doing this and feeling really strong now!", the former Burnley striker takes on a variety of exercises, including sprints and running against a resistance cord.

It shows that the recovery of Rodriguez is going well and in good time, given that the injury was only sustained in April, just five months down the line.

Added dimension

Although Rodriguez is still months away from playing, the sight of his improvement will definitely provide a boost to Southampton manager Ronald Koeman and the club's supporters.

Rodriguez's return will provide another dimension to the Southampton squad, one with pure pace and a mean finish to boot. The striker was all set to be included to Roy Hodgson's England squad for the World Cup before the injury robbed him of the chance.

His return will provide another option to both teams, with Southampton especially missing their talisman at the moment, following the departures of Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana.

Southampton will hope that they don't have to rush Rodriguez back from injury, with the Premier League getting underway. If one of Graziano Pelle, Shane Long and Dusan Tadic do not fire immediately, the Saints might need Rodriguez back in double quick time.
