The Welsh midfielder has not played for the Blues’ first-team since December 2017, when he suffered a knee injury at Middlesbrough which subsequently required surgery to repair cartilage damage.

He’s been hit by a number of niggles since as he bids to get back on the field.

Huws last played for the Under 23s in August, scoring in a draw at Crewe, and made the first-team bench for the 1-0 victory over Rotherham in January.

He will start the Under 23s’ game with Sheffield Wednesday this afternoon in a midfield also including Tristan Nydam and Idris El Mizouni.
