Fabio Da Silva and James Husband have returned to training for Middlesbrough while skipper Grant Leadbitter is also progressing well in his bid to return to fitness, according to manager Aitor Karanka.
Fabio, signed from Cardiff City last month, has been sidelined since he sustained a knee injury in his debut at Fulham in the EFL Cup in August. There was also good news provided on fellow defender Husband, who returned to training after rehabbing from a dislocated shoulder, and the club's captain Grant Leadbitter. Karanka said: "Grant is improving a lot, which is good news. It’s all very positive and he could be back sooner than we thought." Sep 29 - 7:01 PM

Middlesbrough will have to wait up to another month to see summer signing Fabio Da Silva in Premier League action.

Manager Aitor Karanka confirmed that the Brazilian international is expected back within the next month after sustaining a knee injury in the club's League Cup loss to Fulham last month. However, the same cannot be said for veteran defender Grant Leadbitter, who had hernia surgery this summer. Said Karanka"Grant is going well, better than we thought. I hope we can see him - not soon, but before we were expecting. Fabio will be another three or four weeks."

Aitor Karanka was able to provide a positive injury update ahead of game week four even though it wasn’t entirely true.

Speaking as part of Thursdays pre-match media briefing, Karanka revealed: "Everybody is ready to play, apart from James Husband and Grant Leadbitter." However, the Boro boss had overlooked one member of the treatment room, although he might've been forgiven as Fabio da Silva has only just signed for the club. After joining for a fee believed to be in the region of £2m from Cardiff, the former Manchester United full-back enjoyed a brief yet eventful debut in the EFL Cup. Fabio turned goal provider after only 8 minutes at Fulham before a knee injury forced him off just two minutes later. No timeline currently on his return but Boro have been boosted by the news that George Friend is over his recent calf strain. In addition, Marten de Roon and Victor Valdes are also available after shaking off minor niggles.

The 26-year-old left-back has joined Middlesbrough from Cardiff City putting pen to paper on a two-year deal Friday.

The Brazilian is an experienced defender with spells at Manchester United, QPR and Cardiff City accounting for over 100 appearances in English football. This signing boosts coach Aitor Karanka's depth at fullback, but doesn't warrant a signing in fantasy unless George Friend or Emilio Nsue is sidelined due to injury.

Cardiff City are pleased to announce the signing of Brazilian International full-back Fabio da Silva from Manchester United for an undisclosed fee.

This had initially been muted as a loan, but Fabio has in fact joined Cardiff on a permanent deal. The 23-year-old will be immediately available for selection ahead of Saturday’s Premier League home clash with Norwich and could prove decent value, priced below £7million in the Yahoo game.
