However, the defender has been making good progress in his recovery and no longer needs crutches to walk.

And Shaw used his personal Twitter account to keep fans updated about his situation as he headed back down south for the Christmas holidays.

Shaw tweeted on Wednesday morning:

Shaw will no doubt be keeping a close eye on Manchester United’s fortunes as they prepare to take on Stoke City on Boxing Day, before a crunch clash against Chelsea at Old Trafford on 28 December.

United dropped out of the top four last weekend following their surprise 2-1 loss to Norwich City at Old Trafford.
