Belgium league title hopefuls Gent can now fully count on their January acquisition Peter Olayinka as the Nigerian has made full recovery from the injury that has kept him out since January.

Olayinka joined Gent in January from Albanian side Skenderbeu Korce but got injured in training but despite recovering since two weeks ago he was deemed not fit enough for competitive matches by coach Hein Vanhaezebrouck.

However the 20 year old has been pulling his weight in training since they moved to Spain for a short camp ahead of the playoffs for the Belgium league title.

So far he has participated in all of the drills both physical and tactical with no set back meaning he is ready to play his first game since joining the team six months ago.

He will be hoping to add another trophy to his name after helping Skenderbreu Korce to the league title in the 2014/2015 season and probably add to his 2015/2016 goals tally of 10 all scored while in Albania.

Gent are the defending champions of the league in Belgium and they are set to trade tackles with Club Brugge and Anderlecht for the title in the playoffs which begins on the 1st of April 2016.
