Webster To Step Up Rehab Work - Villa Defender Linked

Webster To Step Up Rehab Work - Villa Defender Linked

It's being reported that Millwall defender Byron Webster has now been given the green light to step up his rehabilitation and fitness work following his injury.

LondonNewsOnline have reported that the 30 year old centre half saw a specialist this week and that he has now been given the all clear to step up his workload as he bids to return to full fitness.

Webster is in a battle to be fit again this season following the major knee damage he took that required surgery, so although we may see a cameo or two before the end of the campaign, he's at least on the right track now after Monday's meeting to be fully ready for next season.

Manager Neil Harris said of his progress.

'Byron has got the all-clear to join in outside training with the medical department. He`s able to work back on the grass and that is a big hurdle to get back out there and feel like a footballer outside. When the boys are doing their warm-ups he will be on the pitch next to us, which is a great sight for everyone.'

As Harris says, just being back out with the squad even for light work, will be a huge boost for him after his time on the sidelines.

As for transfer speculation, Millwall have been linked with a move for Aston Villa centre half Tommy Elphick. With Webster still out of contention for a while, it's believed that Harris wants cover in that position and Elphick has been looked at.

LondonNewsOnline understand that a deal won't be done though owing to the wages the player is on following his switch from Bournemouth and we'd need Villa to deal to make anything happen.

Complicating speculation around Elphick is, despite being out of favour for large parts of the season so far, he has been back in the team of late and has impressed but he could certainly do a job for us if we could work something.
