Thomas Vermaelen trained with his Barcelona teammates for the first time since undergoing surgery in December.
Vermaelen, who arrived from Arsenal for £15 million, is yet to make his debut for the La Liga side.
“The main novelty at the training session was Thomas Vermaelen,” Barca said on their website on Wednesday.
“The Belgian defender was able to complete part of training with the rest of the group,” added the statement.
Vermaelen is hoping to play his first official match in a Barcelona shirt next month.
