The 23-year-old has been absent since November's 1-1 draw with QPR due to a knee ligament injury picked up in training the following week.

Prior to that, Morrison had been a regular fixture in Nigel Adkins' back four, featuring 15 times in the Sky Bet Championship.

His recovery was further delayed after straining his quad, but he is now eyeing a return within the next month.

"Sometime in March is the aim," he told the Reading Post.

"Hopefully, I'll be back full training by the end of this week then I can really crack on.

"It's been three and a half months now since it happened. It's been a difficult time but it's just one of those things in football you have to deal with.

"I've gone through it before, although this is the longest time out I've had. I would have been back three or four weeks ago but the quad injury set me back."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
