Athletic Bibao defender Yeray Alvarez has completed his course of chemotherapy and is awaiting scan results with the hope of returning to training, say reports.
An abnormality was discovered in June following the 22-year-old’s recovery from cancer before undergoing a new course of the treatment.
Having been diagnosed with testicular cancer in December last year, the defender underwent successful surgery and return to action for the Basque club in February.
The defender missed this summer’s European Under-21 Championships for Spain but Marca report he is hopeful of an imminent return to training, depending on the outcome of his tests.
