Villa v Southampton injury news: Latest on Bacuna fitness


Leandro Bacuna is in line for a return to the Villa squad for Saturday's Barclays Premier League clash against Southampton.

The Dutch utility player missed last weekend's trip to Crystal Palace with a hamstring strain.

But Bacuna has overcome the problem and will be available for the important top-flight showdown with Mauricio Pochettino's team.

Manager Paul Lambert confirmed the former Groningen man has resumed training and will be in the squad to face the Saints.

He added that there are no fresh injury concerns for his claret and blues side.

"Everybody is fine," said the Villa boss.

"Bacuna is back in the squad. It is pretty much the same squad as last week."

Bacuna has made 29 appearances for Villa in all competitions this term, scoring five goals.
