YAN Valery is in line for his first Saints appearance since the beginning of December.

The right back has been battling back from a nasty viral infection that’s kept him out of action for weeks.

However, Ralph Hasenhuttl revealed he is now back with the squad and could feature against Liverpool on Saturday.

Hasenhuttl said: “Yan Valery has been in training since the beginning of the week. Jannik Vestergaard is back from his concussion.

“Everybody is fit.”

As it stands, the only noticeable absentee from Saints’ matchday squad will be Stuart Armstrong.

The Scottish international limped off the pitch during the club’s 1-1 draw with Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Cup fourth round.

Saints’ boss added: “Stuart is injured and cannot train at the moment. It will take about two or three weeks until he is back. It’s not that bad. He’s got a few problems with his hip muscles.

“The rest looks good.”
