Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw is expected to return to training next week after missing the last six months with a serious injury.

Shaw, 20, had made a brilliant start to the season when he had his leg broken by PSV Eindhoven defender Hector Moreno in a Champions League group game on 15 September.

The England defender suffered a double fracture of his right leg and has already missed 40 Manchester United matches this season.

He should make a return within 10 days and hopes to play a part in Manchester United's Premier League run-in, with an eye on possible making Roy Hodgson's England squad for Euro 2016.

Shaw, who has six England caps, was probably Hodgson's first-choice at the start of the season, having started both qualifiers against San Marino and Switzerland in September.

Hodgson has been seeking regular updates on the fitness of the former Southampton player.

However, United are not going to rush him back unless completely recovered.
