Parramatta coach Brad Arthur has confirmed five-eighth Kieran Foran will return for the Eels in Monday night's NRL clash with Melbourne at Pirtek Stadium.

Foran has spent the past three weeks in rehabilitation after being granted personal leave by the NRL club, but will train with the team on Friday morning and play on Monday before returning to the interstate clinic.

Brad Takairangi will shift back to centre for the match, while Arthur told Sky Sports Radio's Big Sports Breakfast he was not concerned by Foran's lack of practice heading into the match.
