JOHANN Berg Gudmundsson will be part of the Burnley squad that makes the trip to Aston Villa on Saturday.

The Iceland international winger has not featured for the Clarets since coming off with a calf problem in the 1-1 draw at Wolves at the end of August.

The 28-year-old nearly returned to action at Norwich last time out but Sean Dyche is now happy he has got sufficient training under his belt to potentially feature at Villa Park.

Gudmondsson should join Dwight McNeil in the squad, his fellow wide player expected to recover from a dead leg.

Danny Drinkwater remains on the sidelines however.

"Johann comes back into the thinking, he was physically fit last weekend but he’d had two days training in a number of weeks so we made a call on that one," Dyche said.

“He’s had a good week’s training.

“Drinky is back on the grass, but not with us yet, he’s with the physios, so he’ll have a longer period of recovery.

“Dwighty has a dead leg, but I’m hoping and expecting he’ll be okay."

Gudmondsson adds further to Dyche's options out wide with Jeff Hendrick coming to the fore in recent weeks.

 “Johann has looked fit and well in pre-season, particularly in the early part of the season, and was unfortunate to get a niggly injury," the Clarets boss said.

“But he offers what they all offer, in different ways, the quality, performance levels we want, all of our wide players, and Jeff has been done very well there last week and the second part of last season.

“All of the wide players have different qualities, and I include Jeff because he’s so good at operating in different positions.

“But the four main wide players all offer something different whether they start or come off the bench."
