He was initially ruled out for nine months due to the injury, which also forced him to miss the European Championship in France this summer.

He is also unlikely to be involved in Arsenal's next match against Crystal Palace on January 1.

Speaking last week, Arsenal head coach Arsene Wenger said: "He will need some time. It is like the start of a new career for him after so much time out."
