Daily Mail: Holding set to play for U-23s on Friday & first-team return date named
- The centre-back has been out with a knee injury since December.
- The 23-year-old is expected to feature for the reserve side tomorrow.
- He will be available for first-team selection after the international break.
- His first game could be against Watford on September 15.
According to the Daily Mail, Rob Holding is in the final stages of his rehabilitation programme.
The 23-year-old has already made 2 appearances for the reserve side and will likely add to that tally on Friday as the Under-23s face Everton.
This will be one of the final things to prepare the centre-back for making his return to the first team after being out since December.
However, Holding is highly unlikely to be part of the team for next weekend's North London derby. The report claims that the club and the player are aiming for a September 15 return date when Arsenal meet Watford in the league.
Excited to see Holding back in the team?
