Charlie Wyke was injured against Burton Albion.

The summer signing from Bradford has been sidelined since September after suffering a knee ligament injury against Burton Albion.

There had been fears the 26-year-old could be out until Christmas, but the striker gave a more positive update on social media site Instagram.

He said: "All clear off the specialist, not long to go now!"

Wyke's return will be a huge boost for Sunderland manager Jack Ross, who has also seen forward Duncan Watmore step up his recovery from more than a year on the sidelines after his cruciate knee injury.

Watmore played 25 minutes in a behind-closed-doors training game at the Academy of Light last week.

Ross is still looking at adding another frontman to his squad when the January transfer window opens.
