According to Football London, “the teenager has reportedly been penciled in to take part in the Blues’ U23 game against Brighton on Friday in order to make the next step in his recovery.”

That news has been corroborated by The Athletic’s Simon Johnson.

Simon Johnson also noted that “Reece James has also stepped up training.”
