Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini plans to avoid wrist surgery for as long as he can.

The Daily Mail says Manchester United's Belgium international will continue to play for club and county in the coming weeks in a special cast as the damage he has sustained to the ligaments is not expected to get any worse.

However, it is understood that the summer signing from Everton will need an operation to repair the problem and that he faces more than a month on the sidelines at that point.
