Brain-seizure victim Jamie Langfield could make his return to action with Aberdeen next week.

The 31-year-old Scotland B goalkeeper has been on the sidelines since taking ill at the end of May.

He resumed training several weeks ago but has been awaiting medical clearance before returning to match action.

However, manager Craig Brown says Langfield, who signed a new one-year contract in May, could feature for the club's under-19 side on Monday.

Meanwhile, Aberdeen midfielder Yoann Folly has returned to first-team training.

The 26-year-old Togo international broke an ankle in the New Year fixture against Dundee United.
