Given could return to training soon after recovering from knee surgery. "Shay isn't fit at the moment," manager Mark Hughes said Monday. He’s with the physios and we want to get him out on the training pitches sooner rather than later. He’s had an issue with his knee but we’re hopeful once he starts goalkeeping work which he hasn’t been able to do lately, then he’ll be able get up to speed quickly.”
Given's return to fitness will be a nice boost to Stoke's depth, though with Jack Butland firmly entrenched as the No. 1 keeper, Given's fantasy upside is very limited.
