There’s a big boost for Norwich City, Scotland and Kenny McLean as he has his injury fears eased.

Norwich City manager Daniel Farke confirmed last month that the Scotland international could be set to miss five months of action with a torn meniscus.

It’s the same injury which has kept Billy Gilmour out of action since July, only returning to the senior Chelsea fold on Wednesday.

McLean’s length of time on the side line would be dependent on whether he would need an operation to fix his issue.

That won’t be the case according to Farke and now McLean’s in position to make a Norwich City return before Christmas: “For the long term, some good news.

“Kenny McLean could have been out for four or five months but that’s not the case. He could be back around Christmas.”

It’s a big boost for everyone involved. Norwich have over 11 first-team players out with injury at the moment, so to have one on the way back is a bonus.

For McLean, he’ll be delighted not to be on the side line until potentially April, with Scotland’s Euro 2020 campaign to come in June.
