Danny Welbeck is recovering well from an ankle injury.
Welbeck required two rounds of surgery to fix a broken ankle sustained last November.
The 28-year-old spent the last week in the United Arab Emirates working on mobility training.
“[Returning to action] is not something I can put a time frame on,” he told UAE-based publication Sport360. “I want to make sure I’m 100-per-cent right when I come back. But I’m really pleased with my progress.
“It’s nice to have a break and get some good weather. I’m doing a bit of training out here but hopefully when I get back to London Colney I can kick on a bit more. I’m looking forward to it.
“It was difficult to take at the time. There’s never a right time to get injured.
“The early stages were hard but you’ve got to stay strong and focused on what you’ve got to do to get back fit, and that’s what I’ve done.
“There’s stuff that will make you stronger and, mentally, I’m in a good place at the moment. I’m making good progress and I’m happy with the stage I’m at.”
