Brighton & Hove Albion pair Andrew Crofts and Sam Baldock are on course for a return to training in pre-season.
Baldock's 2014/15 season was ended in March after suffering a knee ligament injury during the 2-0 home win against Derby County at the Amex.
Crofts is also due to return to training in pre-season and the midfielder has one final review with his surgeon, after the pre-season tour to France, before he receives the all clear to return to match action.
He missed the majority of last season after damaging his ACL at Vicarage Road in the 1-1 draw with Watford.
It was the second time in two seasons that the midfielder had suffered such a serious injury, but he is now looking in good shape to be ready for the start of the new campaign.
