BARCELONA, Spain (AP) Ousmane Dembele is fit to play in Sunday’s game against Getafe after Barcelona said the France forward has recovered from a leg injury.

Dembele hasn’t played since suffering a hamstring injury in his left leg in a 4-2 win at Real Sociedad on Jan. 14.

Prior to that, Dembele was out for more than three months after rupturing a thigh tendon in his left leg on Sept. 16.

Dembele has been limited to just seven appearances for Barcelona since his transfer from Borussia Dortmund in a deal that could potentially reach nearly 150 million euros (around $180 million).
