Aguero eyes return to training

Sergio Aguero is close to a return to action

Sergio Aguero is hoping to return to training with Manchester City next week, which could see him back in time for the Capital One Cup final.

The Argentina striker, who has scored 26 goals in 25 appearances for City this season, has been sidelined since the end of January with a hamstring injury.

"Feeling very good about my last week of recovery work," Aguero tweeted. "If I keep it up next week I'll train with the team!"

That would suggest Saturday's Barclays Premier League meeting with Stoke is too soon, but Aguero could be fit in time to face Sunderland at Wembley on March 2.
