However, manager Gus Poyet does not want to put a precise timescale on his return.

He told the Argus: "It doesn't need to be in January, it could be in December.

"I won't have a problem if he can play on the 29th or the 22nd. If that was the case it would be great.

"He has been training last week, but with us, I don't know. He has been training more than he was a month ago.

"He has been working on his fitness in different ways, a different programme so that he can get better and maybe join the group.

"He has been doing a bit of everything, strength work, controlled training, running, the new gravity treadmill and plenty of pool exercises which could be really hard but not the same as playing.

"It is a different way of bringing him back to the first team quickly, where he can train and forget about everything. I don't want to put a date on it, because that's not fair."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
