Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher is targeting a return to action next season.

Fletcher has been sidelined for an indefinite period as he seeks to find a way of managing a chronic bowel condition.

"It's a week-by-week situation so I've not got any timescale on recovery, but the target for me is next season now," Fletcher told the Manchester Evening News. "If I can come back then, that would be great for me."
