According to the official site, Arsenal's left back Kieran Gibbs has returned to full training today for the first time in months. Here's what Arsène Wenger had to say:

"He had a normal training session yesterday," confirmed Arsène Wenger on Tuesday morning.

"He is still short to play now but it is good news to have him back and I think one or two more weeks practice will get him back to being available again. That is very positive."

This is after surgery on "both groins" (is that...there are two? I'm so naive), so we'll see. For now, the news that Gibbs could theoretically be ready to go by the Totttenham match on February 26th is encouraging. He could maybe even be ready for Milan or Arsenal's cup tie in the northeast, but given my druthers, I'd rather make sure he is fully ready before throwing him and his dodgy groins into the fire.

At any rate, welcome back, Kieran.
