Dabizas back by August

Last updated : 15 June 2003 By Martyn Elliott

The Greek international escaped the Athens road-smash with a broken nose and a hairline fracture of his arm, and his surgeon believes that his recuperation won’t be too lengthy.

"Dabizas will be back on the field at the end of August at the latest," Lakis Nikolaou told the Sunday Sun.

With Dabizas on the transfer list it’s important both for him and the club that he is fit before the transfer window closes, and this news may be enough to revive the rumoured swap deal with Leeds United’s Michael Bridges.
