Jack Rodwell could make his Manchester City comeback in this weekend's Barclays Premier League clash with Fulham.
The 21-year-old midfielder has been earmarked for a place on the bench after three months on the sidelines with hamstring problems. Rodwell, who has started only two Premier League games since his £12million summer move from Everton, was injured on England Under-21 duty in October.
Manager Roberto Mancini said: "I am happy because I am sure Jack will be an important player for us in the future, because he is young. If we have solved his problem - his hamstring injuries have been often - he will be an important player. Tomorrow he will be ready, but probably for 20 minutes, no more."
