Manchester United manager David Moyes says he will make sure Wayne Rooney's head injury has fully healed before setting a comeback date for the striker.

Rooney missed the Premier League game against Liverpool and England's World Cup qualifiers against Moldova and Ukraine after suffering a nasty cut in a training ground collision with Phil Jones.

He had been hoping to make the United squad for the midweek Champions League meeting with Bayer Leverkusen but Moyes says he will not rush the 27-year-old back to action.

"He is in great physical shape" said Moyes on Friday.
