Agbonlahor suffered the injury against Chicago Fire in pre-season tour he was a frustrated spectator as Villa claimed just one point from their first three matches, with a draw at Newcastle.

But the England international will be available to manager Paul Lambert for the Swansea game after the international break.

"It feels good to be back," he told the club's official website.

"It's been a tough five or six weeks being out and watching the boys start the season but I'm fit and ready now and really raring to go."
