Wesley Fofana is now back to full-team training.
The defender has been out of action since picking up a knee injury in October last year.
But fortunately, the former Leicester man has returned to first-team training and Potter needs to make a big decision once he’s fit.
The £75million summer signing from Leicester made only six appearances for the Blues across all competitions.
His recovery process has been slow and is not expected to be available against West Ham this weekend.
Graham Potter would not rush the defender as Thiago Silva and January signing Benoit Badiashile have formed a formidable partnership in the heat of defence.

“[A Fofana return] is certainly one that I definitely would not expect; last competitive game probably over four months now; I think it was the beginning of October,” Ben Dinnery, an injury specialist commented.
“His only semblance of any sort of real football of note was the behind-closed-doors game with Brentford, where he suffered that reaction or recurrence [of his injury] in that game as well.”
