Roberto Martinez says he is "counting down the days" to Darron Gibson's return to action after revealing surgery on the midfielder's knee was a success.

Gibson underwent the knife on Tuesday, a week after rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament in the Republic of Ireland's World Cup qualifier against Kazakhstan.

The 25-year-old is expected to miss much of the remainder of the season but Martinez says the latest news is a positive step down the road to recovery.

"Darron Gibson had his surgery on Tuesday and that was a really successful operation," said the Blues boss on Thursday. "We're all starting to count the days down until Darron comes back."

Martinez is expected to have a near fully-fit squad to choose from for Saturday's trip to Aston Villa, though Dutchman John Heitinga is a doubt. For full team news, click here.
