QPR manager Ian Holloway has hailed defender Steven Caulker on his continued fight back to full health, saying he is "delighted to have him back".
The 24-year-old has has a turbulent time of late as he battled mental illness and addiction off the field, but Holloway is all too happy to stand by him after seeing him tackle his issues head-on.
Holloway said: "I’m delighted to have him back. That is a potential English centre-half.
"It is not ideal for me because he has only just been training with me, but it was pretty well documented.
"His article in the newspaper was really open – as open as I’ve ever seen any footballer. Part of me was really sad about that, part of me was pleased and proud of him to actually admit that.
"Now he is in a fantastic place and he wants to come back and he wants to work and I can’t believe that I’m the lucky person who will get to work with him.
"The lads feel the same way. For me, now, it’s about helping him with how upfront and honest he’s been, to keep playing, keep working and keep improving. "
