Cape Town - Midifielder Kevin Strootman has returned to training with Roma after recovering from the serious knee injury that ruled him out of the Soccer World Cup.

The Netherlands international suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in a Serie A match against Napoli in March and missed the rest of the campaign which saw his side lose out on the league title to Juventus.

The Giallorossi confirmed his return to the training via their official Twitter account on Monday, but Strootman could still be some way off getting back to full fitness.

"The big news: @Kevin_strootman is back in training with his team-mates for today's session. Welcome back! #ForzaKevin," said the tweet, which was accompanied by a picture of the Dutchman in action.

Roma are said to be preparing to offer the 24-year-old a contract extension at the Stadio Olimpico amid persistent rumours of interest from Manchester United.
