Ghana midfielder Emmanuel Agyemang Badu has joined his Udinese teammates in training on after recovering fully from a thigh injury.
The Ghana international has been sidelined since he underwent a successful surgery in July last year.
He was initially billed to be fit to start the season but his recovery delayed, leaving him out for the past six month.
He was spotted having light training on Friday during the team's session ahead of their game this weekend.
Badu is yet to play a game for the team this season in the Italian Serie A.
Badu returned from a season long loan from Turkish side Bursaspor and he is expected to be one of the key players for manager Julio Velázquez.
The 27 year old joined Udinese in 2010 and spent most of his career in Italy until he joined Bursaspor last season.
His experience will be pivotal for the Zebras in the ongoing campaign.
