Barcelona youngster Ousmane Dembele is back in training with the first team less than three months after a hamstring problem.

The France international made his £138million move from Borussia Dortmund in the summer, but played just two league games before being sidelined.

However, the midfielder is now stepping up his recovery and having already returned to individual work on the pitch, he joined in with team-mates for the first time since September on Wednesday.

Barcelona’s Twitter posted two pictures of the young star and accompanied it with the message: ‘Ousmane Dembele takes part in his first “rondo” with the squad before continuing his solo work as his recovery from injury carries on.’

Dembele has been out since leaving the field during the 2-1 win over Getafe in September.

Boss Ernesto Valverde and the Barcelona medical team have yet put a date on when the 20-year-old may return to full action.

It may be wise to allow the former Rennes man some much needed time to recuperate, after his surgeon raised his belief that the injury may have been inflicted by the unnecessary pressures that have come with his huge price tag.

Sakari Orava told Mundo Deportivo in November: ‘Maybe it was a sin of youth not to say that he felt pain in that area before.

‘The pressure he’d been exposed to after his signing for Barca also could have influenced it.’

 Barcelona are back in action, without Dembele, on Sunday when they travel to face Villarreal in La Liga.
