Unlucky Arsenal defender Mathieu Debuchy has returned to full training, and took to Twitter to reveal his elation.
The Frenchman has suffered two devastating injuries this season, and has been kept sidelined for the majority of the campaign.
He damaged his ankle during a clash with Manchester City early on in the season, which kept him out for months. He then suffered a dislocated shoulder during our win over Stoke City at the Emirates, and has been watching from the sidelines ever since.
The 29-year-old should return to action before the end of the season however, and is clearly delighted at the thought of experiencing first team football once again.
So happy to be back !! Thank you everyone for your support

Debuchy looked like a superb signing when we brought him in from Newcastle this past summer, and immediately hit the ground running at the Emirates.
He looked to be an able bodied replacement for Bacary Sagna, but the Arsenal curse hit him, and he has made just a handful of appearances.
There is a silver lining, with Hector Bellerin emerging as a potential star of the future. He looks capable of being a superb understudy to Debuchy, and could be our right-back for years to come.
