Gallery | Sa, Podence and Traore return to Compton

The staggered return to Compton Park of Bruno Lage's first-team continued on Thursday, with Jose Sa, Daniel Podence and Adama Traore back in training as the squad builds up to the 2022/23 Premier League season.

On their first day back at the training ground, the trio were given warm welcomes from their teammates before undertaking various tests alongside staff from the performance-medical department and heading out onto the grass.

Several more first-team players, including those who were on international duty during the summer, are due back in training over the coming days.
