Hearts striker Uche Ikpeazu gave fans an update on his return from injury – and it’s great news for Jambos.
The striker has been out of action since October after picking up a foot injury.
The former Cambridge striker was actually hurt a few weeks earlier but tried to play through.
He was due to return in February but looks like he is ahead of schedule.
Posting on his personal Instagram account, Ikpeazu revealed that “it won’t be long” until he’s back.
Ikpeazu hit four goals in ten games earlier in the season before injury forced him out the side.
He was joined on the sidelines by a number of key players as Hearts’ fantastic form ebbed away.
Having him back in the side will give Craig Levein’s side a more physical threat up front.
Alongside Stevie Naismith, Hearts looked to have a pretty potent attacking force.
With the likes of Naismith, Christophe Berra and John Souttar all missing a substantial number of games, Ikpeazu’s return will be very welcome.
The arrival of David Vanecek has eased the strain a bit and it will be interesting to see how Levein fits them all into the side.
The Jambos face Livingston this weekend in the Scottish Cup before welcoming Dundee and St. Johnstone to Tynecastle in the space of a few days.
These games might come too soon for the striker but it seems he’ll be back sooner rather than later.
