Derby County attacker Mason Bennett has returned to training after injury.

Derby County midfielder Mason Bennett is back in training after picking up a knee injury back in November.

The 18-year-old was stretchered off in an under-21 game against West Brom, and has spent several weeks recovering.

His prompt return to fitness will be a sigh of relief to fans, with the teenager highly regarded.

Bennett had been on loan at Bradford City earlier in the season, but was recalled in October after scoring once in 13 games.

With Derby pushing hard for promotion, breaking into the side is going to be tough for the teenager and a loan switch could be on the radar once again.

He has 28 first team appearances in the Championship to his career already, and one goal.
