Man Utd youngster Demi Mitchell happy to be back in training

Manchester United youngster Demi Mitchell is delighted to be back in full training.

The left-back returned early from a loan spell at Hearts due to injury.

"It's been a long time so I'm really happy to get back out for my first session back there," he said.

"I'm doing a few days' training and then a couple of days off. I'm taking it slowly and just making sure I come back right. I'm not rushing things so I'm focused on making sure I am 100 per cent ready.

"I've been hitting some of my personal-bests in the gym, doing some of my strength stuff. I've been doing well and want to bring it on the pitch, when I can.

"When you're beating your personal-bests, whether it's sprinting or on the bench-press or anything, you just make sure you're always improving and, when you get out on the pitch, that improvement is there as well. When you see those scores in there, it motivates you to think you can push on, push your body to where it needs to be."
