Manchester United full-back Luke Shaw made his return to training on Monday for the first time since suffering a double fracture in his leg last September.

The 20-year-old England international was back out on the grass with a United physio as he enters the final stages of a long rehabilitation period from an injury he sustained in a Champions League tie with PSV in Eindhoven.

Shaw's appearance at training was confirmed by United team-mate Juan Mata, who uploaded a picture of the pair on Instagram with the caption: "My friend @lukeshaw23 just came in from running out on the pitch! Getting closer"
