Roy looking forward to Hellebuyck return
Nice coach Eric Roy admits David Hellebuyck's return from a seven-month absence with a knee injury will be like having a new signing.
The midfielder trained with the ball this morning for the first time since his injury, having not featured in the first team since a late substitute appearance at Lille in late August. A delighted Roy told L'Equipe: "It's his first session with the ball, that it pleasing. The players welcomed him like a new player."
"He was like a joker (signing)," he continued, referring to the rule which allows French clubs to make one domestic signing outside of the transfer window. "We will see what happens but who knows, maybe he will be the man at the end of the season."
