Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek suffered an Achilles injury in May which ruled him out of the Europa League final against Arsenal and UEFA Nations League finals soon after.
Loftus-Cheek is currently undergoing rehabilitation at Cobham and will be absent throughout pre-season.
However, there has been good progress on his recovery as he has come out of the protective boot he has been forced to wear for much of the past two months.
Speaking to Chelsea’s official website about his recovery, Loftus-Cheek said: “It’s going really well.
“I’ve started walking now and a lot of the rehab is just about trying to strengthen up my muscles again, get strong enough to run and progress that way.
“It’s feeling really good but I’ll take my time and make sure it’s right for when I come back.”
Loftus-Cheek recently just signed a new five year contract with the club which is reportedly worth around £150,000 a week.
