Diame has returned to full training and is expected to return to league action when Hull City faces Swansea City after the International Break, reports the Hull Daily Mail.

Diame has missed nearly four months while recovering from a persistent knee injury. His return is much needed for a Hull City club battling to avoid relegation. Before going out with the injury, Diame recorded four goals in 13 appearances and was Hull City's best midfielder.

Diame (knee) was left out of Hull City's lineup for Saturday's match against Leicester City.

The Tigers were hopeful Diame could return for Saturday's match. His next chance to return from his knee injury comes March 22 against Chelsea.

Diame will have a late fitness test to determine his availability for Saturday's match against Leicester City, but even if he passes fit, he will likely not start, the Hull Daily Mail reports.

Diame had four goals in his first five games for Hull, but they have really struggled in his absence, which could push manager Steve Bruce to overplay him early to avoid the relegation zone, where they are now. While he's not a great play while limited, Diame seems close to a full-go.

Diame is hoping to return from his knee injury March 14 against Leicester City, the Hull Daily Mail reports.

Diame was expected to already be back from the injury, but he suffered a setback last week during training and had his return date pushed back. The Hull attack has picked up a bit lately, but it's far more dangerous when he's on the pitch.

Diame suffered a setback in training his week and he will not play Saturday against QPR. "Mo took a knock to his knee Monday so we've taken him off it all week," manager Steve Bruce said. "We did some precautionary scans and x-rays and thankfully everything is ok. It has set him back a while but we donít think it will be too long and we hope that he can be joining in with training again by the middle of next week.Ē

The Hull attack has been brutally inefficient without Diame, and they'll have to fight a potential relegation battle this weekend without him. If he can return to training next week, he may be able to make his return Feb. 28 against Stoke City.

Diame (knee) is expected to play Saturday against QPR, the Hull Daily Mail reports.

Diame suffered the injury in early December and there was talk that he could even miss the rest of the season because of the injury. However, he has returned to fitness and has even put in extra training sessions this week to make himself fully available to face QPR. The Hull attack have greatly struggled without him and has a completely different look with him on the pitch.

Diame will miss Saturday's trip to Newcastle United, but the team is hopeful he will be able to return to full training within the next 10 days, reports the Hull Daily Mail.

Diame played an integral role in Hull City's attack before injuring his knee back in December. If he is able to return this season, he will likely be eased back into the rotation to prevent any further damaged to such a key contributor to the club.

Hull City manager Steve Bruce said Tuesday that Diame could miss the rest of the season because of his knee injury. "Diame is still in a knee brace and has another couple of weeks in the brace," Bruce said. "He's been in the knee brace for the last few weeks now and he's still a long way off from making a full recovery." He added, "There is a possibility that Diame could be out for the rest of the season, and it all depends on how he is when he comes out of the brace. We will just have to wait and see and hope that nature takes its cause."

Diame was one of Hull's best attacking options this season, scoring four goals in his first eight Premier League matches. However, after suffering the injury Dec. 3 against Everton, the Tigers' attack has gone nearly silent and things aren't looking up if Diame is unable to return this season.
