Felipe Melo to return to first team football by the end of April [divider]
Galatasaray midfielder Felipe Melo has returned to individual training after recovering from his hernia operation.
The Brazilian international participated in light training today and worked on his fitness and conditioning.
The Lions have struggled in the past when the Melo has been suspended or injured.
Melo missed four games in the 2013-2014 season due to suspension and the Istanbul giants failed to win any of those game.
The 30-year-old joined the Lions on a permanent deal from Juventus worth £3 million last summer after playing the previous two seasons on loan at the Lions.
The hard working midfielder has scored one goal in 21 appearances for Galatasaray in all competitors this season.
Galatasaray are currently first in the Süper Lig with 58 points after 26 games.
The Lions will take on Gaziantepspor in the league once the one week suspension of the Süper Lig is over.
The league has been postponed for one week following the armed attack on the Fenerbahçe team bus on the weekend.
