Southampton striker Michael Obafemi is back in training with the first-team squad. 

Ralph Hasenhuttl has taken his men to Tenerife for a warm-weather training camp, and the young Republic of Ireland international has been pictured in action with his teammates for the first time since injuring his hamstring. 

Obafemi has not played since scoring his first ever senior goal for the club just before Christmas. 

The forward scored Southampton’s third of the match as they came away from Huddersfield Town with a vital 3-1 victory on December 22.

Hasenhuttl does not have many attacking options to choose upon ahead of a crucial period of the season, with Danny Ings recently sustaining a hamstring injury of his own. 

This left the manager to rely on Shane Long, Charlie Austin and Sam Gallagher in Southampton’s most recent Premier League outing against Cardiff, in which they succumbed to a 2-1 defeat. 

Obafemi will be determined to return to action and cement his place in Hasenhuttl’s plans.
