Cape Town - Orlando Pirates winger Riyaad Norodien's return to action after a recent injury is 'imminent', the club have announced.
The 22-year-old has been out for a month and has not played for the Buccaneers this season after suffering a foot injury while on international duty with Bafana Bafana.
However, the Soweto giants are expecting to have the industrious wide player back on the field soon.
"The news of the 22-year-old's imminent return will be welcomed by Micho Sredojevic and his technical team, as Pirates enter yet another gruelling month in the Absa Premiership," read a statement on the club's website.
"According to the Bucs medical team, the enterprising attacking midfielder has been training well and the Strength and Conditioning team is satisfied with his progress."
Norodien is in his second season at the club after arriving from Ajax Cape Town.
Meanwhile, Thamsanqa Sangweni is still out of action as he continues to receive treatment on his knee.
Bucs are currently one point off the top of the PSL table and are next in action away to Polokwane City on Saturday evening.
