Jeffrey Schlupp back in Crystal Palace training ahead of schedule

Ghana left-back Jeffrey Schlupp has returned to training ahead of schedule to hand Crystal Palace a major boost.

Schlupp suffered a knee injury in January after colliding with Izzy Brown during the Eagles 2-1 defeat in the FA Cup to Brighton Hove and Albion at the Amex Stadium.

The former Leicester City defender had been pencilled in by the medical team to return to action until mid-March, but the 25-year-old is ahead of schedule after returning to the training pitch at Beckenham this week.

However, it remains unclear when Schlupp will be back in action, but the sight of the Ghanaian in training indicates that he's rearing to go as he aims to reclaim his left back position from Patrick Van Aanholt who has been superb in his absence.

He made 22 appearance in competitions for Roy Hodgson's side prior to his injury setback.
