Here's another welcome sight for all City fans with Kevin De Bruyne returning to training on Tuesday afternoon.

The Belgian midfielder hasn't played since late January after damaging his knee and ankle against Everton. With 12 goals and 12 assists from 31 appearances in all competitions, the former Wolfsburg star has been badly missed.

He is hoping to return after the international break at the end of the month to boost the Blues' title bid. And with Samir Nasri closing in on fitness, City will have two of the best play-makers in the Premier League returning for the final weeks of the campaign.
