Welbeck back in full Arsenal training before Burnley clash

Danny Welbeck has returned to full training with Arsenal ahead of their final Premier League game of the season against Burnley on Sunday.

The 28-year-old has not featured for the Gunners since November after he required surgery on an ankle injury he suffered in the goalless Europa League draw with Sporting.

But the forward has successfully undergone a lengthy rehabilitation programme and trained with his teammates at London Colney on Saturday.

Welbeck, who cost £16 million from Manchester United in 2014, will leave Arsenal at the end of the season as the club have decided to not renew his contract.

But he could be given a send-off in front of Arsenal’s fans in their match against Burnley at Turf Moor on Sunday afternoon.Welbeck could also potentially play some part in Arsenal’s Europa League final against Chelsea later this month.

Despite being expected to miss the rest of the season with his injury, Welbeck was retained in Arsenal’s Europa League squad which was submitted to UEFA at the beginning of February.

Unai Emery’s side will face their Premier League rivals in Baku on May 29.
