Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has shared a positive update on the fitness of United fullback Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Currently, United are without defenders Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Lisandro Martinez, Tyrell Malacia and Luke Shaw, who are all suffering from long-term injuries.

The Dutch tactician has revealed that Wan-Bissaka is close to returning back from injury, and could be available after the next international break in November.

He said: “Of course they are closer, but with Shaw, I don’t expect him back in this block of games. Wan-Bissaka is not too far away from returning to team training and so back in the team.”
