Khedira made an assist as Germany tied 2-2 with Australia in an international friendly Wednesday.

Khedira crossed for Marco Reus to net on 17 minutes to give Germany the lead. It was only the midfielder's second game in any competition since injuring his hamstring in early February.

Khedira made his return to game action on Tuesday versus Schalke, registering just one shot before being removed in the 58th minute.

Khedira had not played since Feb. 7 due to a hamstring injury and was visibly rusty during his time on the pitch. He is not much of a fantasy contributor even when fully fit, and the crowded midfield depth-chart at Real further diminishes his value.

Khedira was an unused substitute Saturday as Real Madrid lost 1-0 to Athletic Bilbao.

Khedira failed to fully recover from a hamstring injury and did not feature against Bilbao as a consequence. The midfielder has now not featured since the Madrid derby on Feb. 7.

Khedira could return from his hamstring injury Saturday against Athletic Club, ESPN FC reports.

Khedira's return comes at a good time for Los Blancos, who are without James Rodriguez (foot) and Luke Modric (thigh). However, Khedira plays mostly as a defensive midfielder, which limits his fantasy production in most formats.

Khedira came on in the 77th minute of Real Madrid's 3-0 win over Getafe on Sunday, but he finished with zero shots, one tackle and 11 passes on 14 touches.

Khedira has appeared in just seven matches this season, and while there is plenty of speculation about a potential move in January, he has made it clear that he'd like to stick with the Spanish giants.

Khedira suffered a thigh injury while training with the German national team Tuesday and he could miss up to six weeks.

Khedira was heavily linked with a number of Premier League clubs this summer, but ultimately decided to stick it out with Real Madrid. He isn't a great fantasy option in most leagues given his defensive preferences, but sitting out certainly hurts whatever value he had.

Arsenal and Real Madrid have agreed to a transfer fee that would bring Khedira to the Premier League this summer, according to Sky Sports.

Khedira has one year remaining on his current contract with Real Madrid, and will still need to work out personal terms with Arsenal before a transfer will be completed.
