Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero will be available for next week's derby at Manchester United.

The Daily Mail says it is understood that the groin injury Aguero suffered playing against Blackburn Rovers12 days ago will keep him out of this weekend's Barclays Premier League clash at home to Aston Villa.

But City's medical staff have examined the South American on his return after the international break and have told manager Roberto Mancini that his star striker will be ready for Villarreal and the Manchester derby that follows a week on Sunday.
