Veteran midfielder Dejan Stankovic is hoping to be back in the Inter side within the next month.
The Serbian international hasn’t appeared for the Beneamata since the game against Parma on May 2, 2012.
The 34-year-old has since then spent time in the treatment room for an Achilles tendon injury which required surgery.
“I’m feeling a lot better,” he told Tuttosport. “It has been tough for me to be out of action for so long.
“From Thursday I will be training with the group again and I hope to be at the Coach’s disposal from mid-February onwards.”
Stankovic has been at Inter since his 2004 move from Lazio.
