Aaron Wan-Bissaka is reportedly nearing a return to first-team action as he continues to train at Carrington.
- Wan-Bissaka injured in September
- Training started again on grass
- First team action approaching
WHAT HAPPENED? The right-back had to be taken off after suffering a hamstring injury in the final minutes of United’s Premier League defeat against Brighton at Old Trafford in September. According to this daily mail, Wan-Bissaka has returned to training outdoors from the gym but is still working out individually to improve his fitness.
BIG PICTURE: The medical team at United hope to have the defender ready within the next 10 days, but he will miss Sunday’s derby against Manchester City.
However, the full-back’s return will be music to the ears of Red Devils fans as regulars Luke Shaw and Lisandro Martinez will spend significant time on the sidelines.

WHAT’S NEXT? Erik ten Hag could introduce Wan-Bissaka against Newcastle United in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night. Otherwise, the defender could feature against Fulham at Craven Cottage on November 4.
