Djetou debut close

Monday 30 September 2002

Fulham's French international loan signing Martin Djetou is set to return to full training after enduring a frustrating start to his time in West London.

The highly-rated defender, signed on a one-year loan deal from Serie A side Parma, picked up a knee injury on his arrival in England, and has yet to make his debut for the Cottagers.

However, the tough-tackling centre-half was back kicking a ball last week and now looks ready to rejoin his teammates for full training.

"Djetou should start full training in midweek," said a Fulham spokesperson, "and it's up to the manager then to decide when he is ready for the first team."
