England Under 21 Captain Nedum Onuoha is growing in stature with every assured performance as City’s centre back. He’s Vital MC’s MOTM against the battling Baggies…

Ned had to work like hell to force himself back into the City side this season after a series of frustrating injuries, but since then he has let nobody down with his no nonsense, sensible defending and increasing authority.

The story goes that England supremo Fabio Capello was at Eastlands to watch Ned against Hamburg last week and that a senior international call up is not far away. What a fairy tale turn of events that would be for the MCFC Academy graduate who had fallen out of favour and remains coveted by a number of our rivals.

Get this lad signed up long term Sparky.

Are we looking at the next Manchester City skipper?
