Fletcher ready to come back to action after bowel surgery.
Darren Fletcher has played just 11 Premier League matches for Manchester United since the start of the 2011/12 season having continually suffered with a chronic bowel condition.
However, it’s thought the 29-year-old could be back in action for the Red Devils at the start of October after making a good recovery from surgery back in January, reports Goal.
The midfielder has not played for United since the start of 2013, but was back in training in early September and has impressed new manager David Moyes enough for the Scot to consider fielding Fletcher.
Medical staff at Old Trafford have been working very closely with the Scotland international and are wary of rushing the midfield ace back into action too soon.
As a result of the treatment and the operation for Fletcher’s condition, the player has lost significant amounts of weight and will need to build up fitness first.
“We’ll give him little bits of football and just pick him up over the coming months and see how he goes,” Moyes was quoted by Goal.
“There’s weight to come back but the big thing is that he’s back in.”
Moyes will welcome the return of Fletcher as the 50-year-old has struggled since taking over the reigns from Sir Alex Ferguson this summer.
United’s loss in the league to West Bromwich Albion on Saturday was their third of the season and from six matches the side have taken just seven points.
