Manchester City has received a major boost on the injury front after Joe Hart was passed fit to return from a calf injury.
The goalkeeper is expected to start against Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday night in the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinal at the Parc des Princes. The club was holding out until the last moment to see if Hart could overcome a calf injury that has required him to be taken off on a stretcher against Manchester United at the end of March. The injury ruled him out for two weeks, which included the international break, but the club's medical staff has cleared him for an immediate return, meaning backup Willy Caballero is set to return to his role on the bench.

Manchester City is holding out hope for Joe Hart to be available to face Paris Saint-Germain in Wednesday's Champions League showdown.

Willy Caballero, who has filled in for Hart over the past two weeks, said he has not been told whether he will start this week as the club is holding out until the last minute to see if Hart can overcome a calf injury suffered during a 1-0 loss to Manchester United prior to the international break. The goalkeeper has been rated as 50-50 entering the week as the club initially targeted this week for his return. The Sky Blues are also awaiting the status of Yaya Toure, who reportedly has less of a chance of being available. The midfielder missed the weekend, in hopes of being available to face the Ligue 1 giants, due to a heel injury that has plagued him for the last month and will be assessed in training today.

The latest reports suggest that Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart could return sooner than expected following the results of his first scan.

Hart was stretchered off shortly after half-time during Sundays’ Manchester derby with Manuel Pellegrini suggesting the England goalkeeper would miss around a month due to a calf strain. However, further tests have revealed the damage is not as bad as originally feared with the 28-year-old said to be targeting a return against Paris Saint-Germain on 6 April in the Champions League. If true, then Hart will only miss one Premier League game – AFC Bournemouth away – which would see Willy Caballero deputise and veteran Richard Wright on the bench. The ageing goalkeeper last played competitively in the league for Ipswich Town in November 2011.

In the second half at the Etihad, Joe Hart had to scramble to clear a poor back pass and injured his calf in the process.

The extent of the injury isn't yet clear but Joe Hart was stretchered off during City's 1-0 loss to rivals Manchester United. With an international break coming up the England number one will have a little extra time to recover before City continue their Champions League campaign and their quest to remain in the top four and qualify for next season's Champions League.

Joe Hart took part in a full Manchester City training session on Thursday and is set to reclaim his starting spot if his hamstring doesn't have any adverse reactions.

Manuel Pellegrini will address the media with a full update later today, but Hart is expected to return after missing just one Premier League game and the League Cup earlier this week. Willy Caballero filled in as the starter after Hart injured his hamstring and back in the club's 1-0 Champions League loss to Juventus. But with Hart set to return, expect Caballero to head back to the bench while Richard Wright drops out of the squad.

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini said he was hopeful that Saturday will see the return of Joe Hart and Sergio Aguero after the duo missed the League Cup win against Hull on Tuesday.

Hart missed Week 14 and the League Cup due to a hamstring injury, but Pellegrini said he will be back by next week's Champions League fixture, at the latest. Willy Caballero has filled in over the past two games and will continue to do so if Hart can't go. Meanwhile, Pellegrini confirmed that defender Vincent Kompany will not be available for the next week of games and would not be fit before the club's Week 16 match against Swansea on December 12 as he recovers from a calf injury. Eliaquim Mangala returned to fill in for him in the League Cup alongside Nicolas Otamendi.

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini confirmed the news that goalkeeper Joe Hart will miss the weekend and likely Week 15 as well with a hamstring injury.

Said Pellegrini on Friday: "Joe Hart has a muscle injury - you never know as it depends how he improves but I think he will be out for ten days." Hart injured the hamstring late in Wednesday's 1-0 Champions loss to Juventus in Turin. Pellegrini confirmed Willy Caballero will receive his second Premier League start of the season while Richard Wright will be the backup keeper for the match against Southampton.

Manchester City could be without goalkeeper Joe Hart after the England starter left the club's 1-0 Champions League loss to Juventus with a hamstring injury.

The goalkeeper was subbed off in the 80th minute after signaling to the bench just after making a spectacular save on an Alvaro Morata chance to keep the one-goal deficit. Manager Manuel Pellegrini confirmed that Willy Caballero, who replaced Hart on Wednesday, will be ready to face Southampton is Hart can't go: "He has a problem with his hamstring and has had a problem in his back for the past week. We hope we don’t lose him, but for if for some reason he cannot play I have trust in Willy Caballero."

Joe Hart is a hard one to figure for fantasy purposes as Manchester City continues to have an up and down second half of the season.

Joe Hart's production was sky high again as he registered a win, a clean sheet and five saves as Manchester City beat Spurs at White Hart Lane. The difficulty with Hart is that his price in salary cap formats is fairly high and City have been up and down with their performances. Over the past four weeks you've gotten -8, 16, 2 and 20 from Hart in the Yahoo format and the scores haven't varied with the quality of the opposition either with the bad matches against United and Villa and the good ones against West Ham and Spurs. Just hard to figure.

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini believes Joe Hart's injury-time penalty save to deny Lionel Messi has kept their Champions League hopes alive.

Ex-Liverpool striker Luis Suarez's two first-half strikes gave Barcelona a 2-0 lead before Sergio Aguero pulled a goal back for the home side with twenty minutes left on the clock. Hart then denied Messi from the spot in the final minute of the match, with the Argentine also missing a great chance to score from the rebound. "It was a very important save," said Pellegrini. "It would have been very difficult at 3-1. It is not the best result to lose at home, but we will go to Barcelona to try to win. We still have the chance to do it."

Joe Hart has signed a long-term contract that will keep him at Manchester City until the end of the 2018-19 season.

The England goalkeeper, 27, joins Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko, Aleksandar Kolarov, Samir Nasri and David Silva in signing a new contract with the club in 2014. Hart told the club’s official website: "I’m really happy, I’ve been here a long time now and I want to keep that going. Hart joined the club from Shrewsbury Town and has made 276 appearances since.

Manchester City's Joe Hart showed his very best form against Tottenham to ensure he remains the number one goalkeeper at the Etihad ahead of summer signing Willy Caballero.

Manuel Pellegrini managed Hart's drop in form perfectly last season by making the keeper fight for his place against Costel Pantilimon, and the summer signing of Caballero has seen the England keeper raise his game even further. Despite the lack of a clean sheet, Hart amassed a staggering 21 fantasy points against Spurs thanks to six saves - including the key penalty stop from Roberto Soldado - and deserved an equal measure of the plaudits handed out to four-goal hero Sergio Aguero. However, with Hart's price so high in the Yahoo game you'd need to feel supremely confident of a Manchester City clean sheet to select him in your starting XI over the far cheaper Thibaut Courtois or Fraser Forster.

Liverpool have emerged as potential suitors for Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart.

This seems extremely unlikely, but the Metro newspaper have quotes from Hart which suggest he is unhappy with his current contract situation - despite more having more than 18 months left to run - because Manchester City have not started discussions over a new deal. The basis for the Liverpool link is simply that Simon Mignolet has had a rough start to the season which may lead to the Reds entering the market for a new keeper, so take this rumour with a pinch of salt.

Manchester City are in advanced talks to sign Malaga goalkeeper Willy Caballero.

Caballero played under Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini when he was in charge of Malaga between 2010-2013 and is regarded as one of the best goalkeepers in La Liga. The 32-year-old stopper will be joining the club to provide back-up and competition for Joe Hart, after Costel Pantilimon left to join Sunderland last month.

Arsenal may have started the trend of mostly foreign starting line-ups competing for Premier League titles but City are taking it to a new level with only one player on the England roster for Brazil.

Joe Hart will be the undisputed starter in goal for England in Brazil this summer but what will be shocking is that he will be the only representative of the Premier League champions in the 23 man squad. Even at the peak of their "foreign-ness", Arsenal had David Seaman, Sol Campbell, and Ashley Cole playing for England among their French attacking stars. Turn the clock forward to 2014 and only James Milner was even a part-time English starter beyond Hart for City while Jolean Lescott and Gareth Barry were at the fringes of the squad and loaned out respectively as the next most prominent Englishmen playing for the champs.
