Darren Fletcher has no plans to announce his retirement, contrary to recent speculation.

The Manchester United midfielder has been absent since December after it was revealed he was suffering from a chronic bowel complaint that had been affecting him for months.

On Monday night rumours began circulating that Fletcher had accepted he would never overcome the problem and was set to quit. However, Press Association Sport understands that the rumours are wide of the mark and that the 28-year-old remains on course to begin his comeback this summer as planned.
