Felipe Caicedo's career is back on the up and he's aiming to keep it that way by making his mark in the Copa America as Ecuador mount their challenge in Argentina.
His move to Eastlands broke the transfer record for an Ecuadorian but the influx of strike power at City meant Caicedo has needed to follow his fortune with loan moves away from the club.

There is now widespread speculation that the Spanish side will trigger his buy-out clause from City with a view to trading him on, with Russian clubs said to be keen to sign him.
He wasn't able to find the net in Ecuador's final warm-up game at the weekend in Quito, where a second-half goal from striker Marco Fabian decided in favour of a young Mexican line-up.
