Albrighton has been out of action for three months with a stress fracture in his foot, but has now returned to training.
He told Villa's official website: "It's been so frustrating. It's dragged out like it's been years.
"But it's going well now. I started training on Sunday and I did some more training on Tuesday. Hopefully I will have a couple of weeks to get sharp and then I can get going again.
"I have been doing full training with the group. I had a few sessions with the fitness coach and the physios previously and it went fine. Touch wood, I'm back now.
"It's a dream to be back. Watching the lads over the last couple of games has been fantastic. But there's nothing like playing."
