Manchester City's Robinho is fit and set to play against Hull on Saturday in his first game since suffering an ankle stress fracture in August.

The Brazil forward, City's British record 32.5 million pound signing, was selected by his country for friendlies against England and Oman this month, without featuring in either match.

But City first team coach Eddie Niedzwiecki believes that international call up may have helped Robinho, progress.

Niedzwiecki told the Manchester Evening News on Wednesday: "Robi is looking really good. We are pleased, after all the speculation when he went with Brazil, he didn't play for them because he wasn't ready.

"He had good training and good treatment with them and has come back to us looking sharper by the day.

"Things are looking very promising for him in terms of the weekend and he should be up for selection."
