Danny Welbeck has returned to light training with Watford following a lengthy spell out of the side with injury.

A video shared on the club's social media channels on Wednesday evening showed the striker running and getting involved with some training exercises as he nears a return to football.

The former Manchester United and Arsenal man has not played since he limped out of the 1-1 draw away at Tottenham back in October with a torn hamstring.

However, the club are keen not to push Welbeck into a premature return and, ahead of last Saturday's FA Cup game with Tranmere Rovers, assistant coach Craig Shakespeare said they were still unsure when he would be available again.

"He's training outside at the moment," he said.

"It's more or less one to one, he's not joining in with the full squad, but I haven't got a date."
