Dortmund clear up Reus confusion

Borussia Dortmund have confirmed that star forward Marco Reus remains "on course" for a mid-August return to team training. BVB head coach Thomas Tuchel had appeared doubtful Reus would be back as initially diagnosed, but sporting director Michael Zorc has since clarified the situation. The 27-year-old could, therefore, be fit to face 1. FSV Mainz 05 on Matchday 1 of the new campaign.

Boateng up and running

Also making steady steps along recovery road is FC Bayern München defender Jerome Boateng. The 27-year-old started running again on Tuesday for the first time since injuring his right thigh in Germany's UEFA EURO 2016 semi-final defeat to France over a month ago. Boateng remains on track to be fit for Bayern's opening fixture of the new Bundesliga season against SV Werder Bremen.

Coke lift

It will be a while before FC Schalke 04 midfielder Coke is up and running again, but the Spanish midfielder could return to action sooner than first thought after specialists deemed surgery on the cruciate knee ligament injury suffered in last week's pre-season friendly win over Bologna FC unnecessary. If all goes to plan, the 29-year-old will be match-fit before the year is out.

Jedvaj relief

Alarm bells were ringing for Bayer 04 Leverkusen on Wednesday morning when Croatia international defender Tin Jedvaj had to be carted off the pitch after taking a knock to the foot in training. The 20-year-old has endured a number of injury setbacks in recent seasons, but on this occasion only suffered heavy bruising.

Injury restricted Leverkusen's Tin Jedvaj to 15 Bundesliga appearances last season.

New pals

On a lighter note, Bayern's David Alaba has taken to Twitter to welcome summer signing Renato Sanches to the club. The Austria international appeared more than happy to show the UEFA EURO 2016 Best Young Player of the Tournament - currently sidelined with a groin injury - the ropes at the 25-time Bundesliga champions' annual Media Day:
