The United midfielder, who has been sidelined for two months having undergone surgery on a lateral ligament injury, has now returned to full training.

"I've got these next few weeks to get as fit as I can, so hopefully I'll be fresh when I come back," he has said.

"It's a couple of months since the operation now and everything seems to be okay. I'm on track to return at the end of January or the start of February.

"It's been frustrating for me. I still see all the games but it does get a bit boring just watching because all you want is to be out there playing.

"But I know that I have to be patient and hopefully I'll be back playing soon."
