Manchester United defender Luke Shaw has been allowed to return home following a double fracture to his leg, according to Sky sources.

The England international suffered the injury during United's 2-1 defeat to PSV Einhoven last Tuesday.

Shaw has since been recovering in a Manchester hospital since arriving back from the Netherlands at the weekend.

The 20-year-old's return to England had been delayed because medical staff had been concerned about possible infections to Shaw's wounds.
