Aaron Ramsey may return to full training this week but Arsène Wenger does not expect to call on him for at a least month after that.

In the next few days, the Arsenal midfielder is scheduled to join up with the main group for the first time since breaking his leg at Stoke on February 27.

It is a highly significant moment but, one that his manager is anxious to play down. It will be well into December before Wenger will even start thinking about handing him a first-team return.

"Aaron should be in full training next Friday,” said the manager.

“But then you have to give him at least one month competition with the reserve team.”
