The 34-year-old has been out of action since suffering a leg fracture on his Bayer Leverkusen debut on September 11 having missed the World Cup because of an ankle injury while at Chelsea.

Ballack will now hope to be fit when Leverkusen, who are second in the Bundesliga, resume their league campaign after the winter break on January 14 against leaders Borussia Dortmund.
