Theo Walcott says that he hopes to be back playing for Arsenal in a “matter of weeks” after his lengthy lay-off with a knee injury.

The England forward has not featured since January after suffering ligament damage and missing the World Cup after requiring surgery.

I’m just looking forward to getting out there and playing again

The 24-year-old has been stepping up his recovery in the last few weeks and is hoping to make a return for the Arsenal first-team in the not-too-distant future.

“We’re not setting specific comeback matches, but I’m just pleased it’s hopefully now only a matter of weeks before I’ll be back playing,” Walcott told Arsenal’s website.

“There may be one or two under-21s matches I’ll be involved in first. I’m just looking forward to getting out there and playing again.

“Everyone has been so good with me – the Arsenal medical team, the Arsenal fans, and of course my family. Everyone has worked so hard and have been so supportive towards me.

“And now I’m coming to the end of my rehab, I just can’t thank everyone enough.”
