Fabrice Muamba may not be dancing down the street just yet but it would not surprise Bolton boss Owen Coyle to see the midfielder back on a football pitch reasonably soon.

Muamba was released from hospital on Monday, a month after he suffered a cardiac arrest at White Hart Lane that stopped his heart for more than an hour.

A leading heart expert has predicted the 24-year-old could be back playing in six months, and Coyle said: "Knowing Fabrice and how much of a battler he is, it wouldn't surprise me if he comes back."
