Manchester United winger Ashley Young is set to return from injury and take part in first-team training.

According to the Daily Mail, the England international will return to training for the first time in more than a month after recovering from a knee complaint.

The former-Aston Villa midfielder has been out of action with the knee problem since Manchester United's match against Fulham at Old Trafford on August 25.

But Young will return to training this week. The 27-year-old will work with those United stars not on international duty, and the reserve team as he looks to build up his match fitness.

The winger joined United in 2011, and was impressive for the Red Devils last season. But injury interrupted his pre-season preparations after England duty at Euro 2012, and Young has fallen behind Nani and Antonio Valencia in the pecking order at Old Trafford.

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson reportedly hopes that Young could return to the first-team squad as early as October 20, when United take on Stoke City at Old Trafford.

The United boss is also optimistic that he will have more defenders to choose from after the international break. Chris Smalling, who has been out with a foot injury, is expected to return although he didn't train on Wednesday.

Manchester United have had concerns at the back, with Smalling and Phil Jones long-term injury worries, and captain Nemanja Vidic out for another four weeks.
