It’s been reported today that David Meyler could make his long anticipated return to full training at Hull City this week and give Leonid Slutsky a boost ahead of the Championship opener against Aston Villa and former manager Steve Bruce.

Meyler has been rehabilitating and working his way back to fitness over the summer following his medial ligament knee damage sustained last season in April, but he’s been making steady progress and it’s anticipated he can now return to full training this week and hopefully prove his fitness for the Championship opener following our relegation last term.

The 28 year old has played no part in our pre season build up so far, but if he does make a return this week the hope would be he can at least become an option for Slutsky on the bench should he be required, although we are well stocked with midfielders so there’s no reason to pull him back too ahead of time and overly risk a reoccurrence of the problem.

If he can be passed fit for the opener, even in a bench capacity, with four league games plus the EFL Cup tie in August’s schedule that would obviously be a boost.

It’s also expected that we can welcome back Evandro according to the Hulll Daily Mail with him missing the last fortnight following the issue he sustained in the Portugal based friendly against Bristol Rovers.

Again Evandro probably won’t work his way into first team plans for the opener at this stage, but getting to bench fitness with August’s fixtures leaves him as a valuable option.
