Isaksson ready for action as Weaver commits to City

Manchester City boss Stuart Pearce has received a double dose of good news on the goalkeeping front with Andreas Isaksson ready to step up his comeback bid and first-team rival Nicky Weaver pledging his future to the Eastlands outfit.

Isaksson has yet to make a senior appearance for the Blues since his £2million arrival from Rennes in the summer.

The Swedish World Cup star initially suffered an ankle injury in his first week of training with City, then damaged his knee just as he was about to launch his bid for a place in Pearce's starting line-up.

Finally, Isaksson has recovered from surgery and, while it may be next week before Pearce even considers the keeper for a reserve team outing, the City chief is glad his injury problems appear to be at an end.

'Andreas started training with us yesterday,' Pearce told the clubs website.

'Obviously, we will have to build him up slowly but he is officially fit now, so we shall have to see if he is ready for a game in the reserves next week.

'He has not been available since we have signed him, which is very disappointing for me as it was the second highest amount I have ever spent on a player.

'We hope he is soon back fit and putting pressure on some of the other goalkeepers.'

In Isaksson's prolonged absence Weaver has stepped in with a series of exceptional performances.

After almost four years on the sidelines with major knee problems, Weaver has starred in all but one of City's games so far.

It may have been a difficult year for the Blues, who have picked up just a single point on their travels but entertain crisis club Newcastle on Saturday boasting an excellent unbeaten home record during which they have not conceded a goal, but Weaver has been one man to catch the eye on a consistent basis.

And Weaver is hoping he can maintain that form throughout the campaign so he can earn an extension to his current contract, which is due to expire in the summer.

'I would love to stay here beyond this season,' Weaver told the official Manchester City magazine.

'I have been in Manchester all my adult life and will have been here 10 years come April.

'I don't know much different. I have seen the club in good times and bad. It has been incredibly good to me and of course I want to extend that relationship.

'The players that leave here and go to a bigger and better club are few and far between.

'Normally, when they leave they go downhill. I don't want to leave. I want to stay here and fight for my place.

'I have to convince everyone that I can stay fit and focussed and the best way I can do that is to play in the Premiership and keep clean sheets.

'If I do that then hopefully the manager will offer me a new deal.'
