Manchester City's Micah Richards is reportedly eyeing a first-team return from a knee injury against Newcastle United on March 30.

Manchester City defender Micah Richards is reportedly working towards making a return to first-team action by the end of the month.

The 24-year-old has been on the sidelines since October last year, when he suffered a knee problem during the Premier League champions' 1-0 win over Swansea City.

Richards has stepped up his rehabilitation and will target a comeback against Newcastle United on March 30, according to The Telegraph.

Meanwhile, recent reports have suggested that Arsenal are keen to sign the full-back in the summer.
