Keane, who’s scored three times in nine games for the Blues since arriving on loan from Hull in January, told the club website: “I’m back outside now and if all goes well, I’ll be back training with the lads next week.

“My rehab has been going to plan. I’ve not had any setbacks and I hope it stays that way.

“My aim was always to get back for the game after Hull. I’m not sure if I will be ready to start but hopefully I will be fit enough to be available for selection.”
