Welbeck close to return

Manchester United Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed that England striker Danny Welbeck should return to training next week.

After injuring his hamstring after scoring the first goal in United's 8-2 annihilation of Arsenal a fortnight ago, it was felt Welbeck would be sidelined for the remainder of the month.

However, the 20-year-old has made good progress in his recovery during the international break.

And, although he will not be involved in tomorrow's Premier League encounter with Bolton at the Reebok Stadium and is virtually certain not to travel to Portugal next week when United open their Champions League campaign against Benfica, Ferguson is hopeful Welbeck will be back in action fairly quickly.

"Danny is making good progress,'' said Ferguson. "The injury is not as bad as we thought and he should be training next week.''

Ferguson also confirmed Antonio Valencia will be available after shrugging off the ankle injury he suffered during Copa America, although skipper Nemanja Vidic and fellow defender Rafael remain sidelined.
