I´ll be back - Laursen

Aston Villa defender Martin Laursen has set his sights on returning to full training within a fortnight as he dismissed speculation that he will not play again this season.

Laursen joined Villa from AC Milan in a £3million move last summer and has been side-lined since August after suffering knee ligament damage in the Barclays Premiership clash at Charlton. The Danish international then broke down in an attempted comeback in a behind closed doors friendly with Northampton in November after taking a knock on the same leg, but he is adamant that the initial knee problem is cured and is now viewing matters in a positive vein.

Laursen told PA Sport: "The operated knee is doing fine. I don´t feel anything but I had some other problems when I started again. When we played Northampton I came off with a knock on my leg, then two days later I damaged the medial ligament in my left knee and I am still struggling a bit with that."
