Emenike won plaudits for his performance in Spartak's 3-2 win over Barcelona in September and the news of his return suggests he could feature when the Spanish giants visit Moscow Nov 20 for a Champions League clash.

Emenike "trained with the main group with minor limitations at the end of the session", a report on the Spartak website said after Tuesday's training.
