On loan FC Porto midfielder Fidelis Irhene is close to returning to full fitness after shaking off the injury that has kept him out since the 26th of March 2016.

Irhene out on loan to Portimonense served a one match ban for the red card he picked up against Famalicao on the 26th of March when they drew 1-1 with the third placed team.

After his ban he picked up an injury in training that kept him out of Portimonense last league game against Freamunde which was played a day after he returned back to training.

Coach Jose Augusto will now have to decide if the 20 year old is fit enough for this weekend game against Victoria Guimaraes as Portimonense currently fifth on the log standing continue their push towards promotion to the top division in Portugal.

So far Irhene has made 21 appearances with one goal to his name at the club where he is teammate to Nigeria youth international Musa Yahaya.
