The USA international has been out of action this season with a knee injury.
But Edu is hopeful of a return against Celtic on 3rd January.
Edu said: “I hope so. I don’t know but I hope so.
“I’m back involved a little bit and training with the team.
“Now it’s just a matter of taking it day by day and not looking too far ahead, getting sharp and getting my fitness back.
“But right now the knee is feeling pretty good and hopefully I’m back sooner rather than later.”
