Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Idrissa Gueye is in line to make his much-awaited return from injury against Dijon in Friday’s Ligue 1 game.

The 30-year-old has been sidelined from action since featuring for Senegal in an international friendly against Brazil on October 10, after picking up a hamstring injury.

The combative midfielder missed PSG’s Champions League 5-0 thrashing of Club Brugge and their league games against Nice and Marseille.

Having been certified fit, the former Everton man has been named in the Parisians’ squad to face ‎Stephane Jobard’s men along with Cameroon international Eric Choupo-Moting, according to a statement on the club website.

Gueye will also be expected to feature in his side’s second leg outing against Belgian club Brugge on November 6.

The Senegal international has been outstanding in his defensive role since teaming up with the French champions in the summer from Premier League side Everton.

Gueye has helped Thomas Tuchel’s men keep clean sheets in all eight games he has featured in, and his impactful showings ensured the Parisians continued their domination in Ligue 1, having gathered 27 points from 11 games, eight ahead of their closest rivals Nantes.

The midfielder will hope to produce his best again when they slug it out against Dijon and help his side to further extend their lead in the league table.
