Manchester City goalkeeper Nicky Weaver could return before the end of the season after more than a year out. Weaver, 25, has returned to training for the first time since undergoing knee surgery at the turn of the year - on the back of several false starts.

The former England under-21 international's last first-team appearance was in August 2003.

City boss Kevin Keegan told his club's website: "It is great to see him back out there but he's still some way off."

Weaver had become something of a forgotten man during his injury absence but has begun working with City's goalkeeping coach Tim Flower.

Nicky Weaver could be back challenging for a Manchester City first-team place by February next year.

The former England Under-21 keeper has had a horror time with injuries over the last two years and in the summer was forced to undergo pioneering knee surgery in the United States in an effort to save his career.

After failing in yet another bid to reach full fitness, Weaver agreed to a cartilage transplant knowing if he did not complete his recovery this time, there would be little alternative other than to accept the inevitability of retirement.

Nicky Weaver will make his long-awaited comeback from injury next week before being sent on loan by Manchester City manager Kevin Keegan.

The goalkeeper has made just one appearance for City since March 2002 after being laid low by a serious knee injury.

But an operation on his cartilage earlier this year has finally given Weaver some light at the end of a long, dark tunnel.

February had previously been thought of as the likeliest date for the 25-year-old's return but he is due to play for City's reserves against Liverpool next week.

An exact day for the fixture has yet to be settled on but, barring any late problems, Weaver will be involved in the game.
