Keita Balde is set to return for Inter Milan when they meet with SPAL in Sunday’s Italian Serie A game.

The Senegal international last featured for the Black and Blues in their win over Empoli in December 29 after suffering a thigh injury.

And ahead of their tie with Leonardo Semplici’s side the former Lazio star has heralded his readiness for the encounter.

The return of the winger will be a boost for Luciano Spalletti’s men who are winless in their last three games, and are still without main striker and former captain Mauro Icardi.

Inter Milan are fourth in the Serie A log with 47 points from 26 games.
