Theo Walcott has revealed on Twitter that he has resumed full training with Arsenal after missing the past two weeks through illness.

It has been three weeks since the former Southampton man last appeared in an Arsenal shirt.

The 28-year-old attacker has started six games in all competitions for the Gunners this season but none have come in the Premier League, managing just three cameo appearances.

Walcott, who has three goals in all competitions, shared the positive injury update on Twitter but his revelation was met with ridicule by many fans of the North London club.

The attacker, who joined the club in 2006 for £12.5 million, has been blighted by inconsistency which has staggered his progress in recent years and some supporters called on him to leave the Gunners in January.

Walcott was linked with a £30 million move to Everton in the summer but a move never materialised.

If he wants regular first-team football and the slightest hope of going to the World Cup with England, he will have to leave Arsenal in January, but it remains to be seen whether manager Arsene Wenger allows him to do so.

On form, Walcott is quite a decent goalscorer who bagged 10 Premier League goals in 23 starts last season. Problem is, he's rarely in form.
