Manchester United striker Federico Macheda has rejoined Doncaster Rovers following his return from injury. 

Macheda's initial one-month loan spell at the Keepmoat Stadium was cut short due to a hamstring injury, which led to the Italian forward's return to parent side Manchester United so he could be assessed by their medical team. 

The 22-year-old has now sealed a temporary move back to Paul Dickov's side, in a deal that will see him stay at the Championship strugglers until the end of December.

Macheda's return to Doncaster will boost Dickov's side's hopes of remaining in the Championship, as the Italian was in outstanding form before picking up an injury. 

The Manchester United outcast, who has failed to make an impression at Old Trafford, scored two goals in four games before his return to David Moyes' side. 

Macheda is expected to be allowed to leave the Red Devils on a permanent basis in January, as Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney, Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck are all ahead of the Italian in the Manchester United pecking order.
