Athletic's Yeray could be back in action in two to three weeks

Yeray Álvarez, who had surgery for testicular cancer in December, did running at Athletic's base on Thursday and is to rejoin training shortly.

Athletic Club defender Yeray Álvarez is back running at the LaLiga outfit's training ground, and could be back in action in under a month.

Yeray had surgery in late December after being diagnosed with testicular cancer, with Athletic saying he was making "positive" progress in the wake of the operation.

In a statement last week, the Basque side also revealed that, as things stand, the 21-year-old centre-back "will not need any complementary treatment".

Could be in selection contention inside three weeks 

Having completed exercise-bike work over the past couple of days, he did jogging on the pitches at Lezama on Thursday, first alongside Athletic physio Xabier Clemente and then with team-mate Óscar de Marcos, who is recovering from an injury.

Athletic expect Yeray to rejoin group training shortly, with the club not ruling out a return to match fitness within two to three weeks.
