After years out injured, Marco van Ginkel is close to making his return for PSV Eindhoven.

Van Ginkel last played a game two-and-a-half years ago, but is back in full training again with PSV Eindhoven, who signed the midfielder on loan from Chelsea in the summer.

Speaking to ESPN, Van Ginkel said, “The knee is doing well, we are doing well. For the last two weeks, I have been doing everything with the group again.

“Now that I am so close again, it is starting to itch again. In the past two weeks, I have taken steps and now I have to take the step towards the games.”

Despite not playing since May 2018, Van Ginkel never thought about quitting, “Eventually you find out that football is really your thing. That fire has always kept burning and it will do so for the time being. When you are that close, you know that you have not done everything for nothing.”

Van Ginkel will not be in the squad this weekend as PSV Eindhoven face Ajax.
