Paris Saint-Germain defender Sergio Ramos is set to return to action after over two months out with a troublesome calf injury.

The 36-year-old has been included in a 22-man squad to face FC Lorient at 7.45pm on Sunday evening.

PSG have also revealed that Angel Di Maria will miss the game against Lorient with a muscle injury, while the match comes too early for Marco Verratti, who will resume training this week.

Ramos last featured for PSG on January 23, scoring his first goal for the club in a 4-0 win over Stade Reims.

He joined from Real Madrid last summer, but has endured an injury-ravaged spell in the French capital so far, making only five appearances across all competitions.

After a Madrid career in which the Spanish international largely avoided serious injury, he suffered a calf problem soon after joining Mauricio Pochettino’s side. That meant he was sidelined until late November, but he suffered another issue to the same area in January.

Leonardo, PSG’s sporting director, admitted last month that the signing had not gone “as imagined”.

Ramos has one more year left on his contract at the club, who lead Ligue 1 by 12 points.

However, they were embarrassingly knocked out of the Champions League at the round of 16 stage, giving up a two-goal aggregate lead to Real Madrid in the final minutes of the game. Ramos missed the tie against his former team.
