Daley Blind: Ajax defender returns to pitch after recovery from heart condition

- Daley Blind has been declared fit from a heart condition

- The defender has been kept off the pitch since December

- A statement from the club says he will be available for Utrecht clash

Daley Blind has been declared fit from a heart condition that kept him off the pitch since December and will make a return into Ajax's first team when The Jews visit Utrecht in an Eredivisie clash.

The former Manchester United star was diagnosed with "heart muscle inflammation" during a Champions League encounter against Valencia in December.

Blind has since then been on the sideline. But according to a new report, he is now fit to play for the Dutch champions in their next away encounter.

According to a statement on the club's website, the Dutch defensive midfielder is now fit to return to pitch action following a series of medical tests.

The Dutchman is an instrumental figure in Ajax's squad this season having made 26 game appearances prior to the Valencia match.

He joined Ajax in 2018 after spending four years in Premier League with Manchester United.

Ajax will face Utrecht at Stadion Galgenwaard on Sunday, February 9, as they hope to extend their win in the league.

Erik ten Hag's men are currently leading the league with 50 points-- three points above their close challengers AZ Alkmaar.

Ajax had their best season campaign in recent times last year when they won the domestic double and were close to winning UEFA Champions League.

The Nigerian international made a return as a 34th-minute substitute in City's 4-1 Premier League win over West Ham in January.

He later went on to play full 90 minutes during Carabao Cup second leg clash against Villa.
