England Under 21 skipper Nedum Onuoha only returned to the City side at the turn of the year but the MCFC Academy graduate’s growing reputation has been enhanced with each game…

England manager Fabio Capello has continued to monitor the eloquent Onuoha’s development this year. As he continues to hold City’s back four together, a senior international call up cannot be ruled out before too long.

Rumours persist around Eastlands that Ned will be given the City captain’s armband this summer after Blues stalwart Richard Dunne departs.

Ned is Vital MC’s 52nd MOTM of the 55 games played so far this season.
