JASON Tindall believes winger Arnaut Danjuma is “in a good place” as he looks to step up his recovery from a hamstring injury.

The Dutchman had been in stellar form before being struck down by the problem, which has seen him miss Cherries’ past 10 league fixtures.

He had scored five goals in 12 Championship contests up until that point, as well as registering an assist.

But manager Tindall revealed the winger was now back training on grass, working with head of sport science Dan Hodges.

Tindall told the Daily Echo: “It’s been a while coming but he is now out on the training ground working with Dan Hodges and his team.

“It’s now about getting him up to speed as quickly as he possibly can.

“He’s got a good few days now with Dan and his team to work hard and we need to get him up to speed physically, as quickly as we can.

“He’s been out a while and longer than we initially thought and hoped.

“But he’s now in a good place and it’s now just about building those fitness levels up so when he comes back into the squad, he can go out there and deliver the best Arnie Danjuma.”

The 23-year-old first joined Cherries from Club Brugge in a £13.7million switch in August 2019.

He struggled with foot problems last season before dealing with his latest injury setback this campaign.

Asked how mentally tough it was for a player to deal with injury issues, Tindall replied: “It’s tough but I think as long as you see light at the end of the tunnel, it makes it easier. Arnie has had that light for a period of time now.

“It’s about making sure that whilst he is out we do all the right things to make sure that when he does come back, a bit like Junior Stanislas, he comes back and stays back.

“We had to be patient with Junior, we had to be patient with David Brooks but I think we’ve seen the rewards for that patience and the work that has been done while those guys were injured.

“What we don’t want is a player to be injured, then come back for a couple of weeks but be back to square one.

“It’s important we try to get it right as best as we can the first time, rather than rushing him back."
