Norwich City's Belgian international midfielder Vadis Ofoe made his comeback from a knee ligament injury in Thursday's 0-0 practice match against MLS side Chicago Fire at Colney.

Ofoe has not played since suffering the injury on his first league start for the Canaries in October's 0-0 Championship draw against Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough.

The 25-year-old had suffered a minor setback in his recovery last month and City boss Alex Neil made it clear he would take no chances with the midfielder who has been restricted to four appearances for the Canaries since his close season move from Club Brugges.

Ofoe tweeted his delight at a long-awaited return on his official Twitter account.

'Happy with my 1st game Again today. I wanna thank everybody that supported me in this tough period but WE are back now #blessed #GodsGrace.'

Former Ipswich player and Fire head coach Frank Yallop named two separate starting line ups which included recent signing from Wigan Shaun Maloney.
