Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has flown home early from the club's tour of the Far East after suffering a calf injury in the win over Arsenal on Friday night.
The Belgian international struggled with a calf problem towards the end of last season and pulled up in the second half of City's tour match against the Gunners in Beijing's Birds Nest Stadium.
"Early signs are really good. The scars have healed really well, but we will see how I feel when I start playing again. Fingers crossed it will all have healed up.
"I think the worst of it is over now. There will be a two-week healing process, and I have started my rehab to try to get fit and catch up with the rest of the lads.
"I don't really want to put a timescale on it, but hopefully I will be ready for the main games starting.
Manchester City Football Club can confirm that Andy Welsh has left the organisation.
Andy joined the Club Academy in July 2008, later becoming Academy Manager. He was further promoted to the role of Elite Development/Reserve Team Manager in December 2009.
Andy was responsible for the coaching and training of the Elite Development/Reserve Team and Academy scholars, as well as first team squad members who were not participating in League and Cup competitions.
Manchester City Football Club would like to thank Andy for all his hard work, dedication and commitment during his time at the Club and wish him every success in his future career.
Attilio Lombardo will assume responsibility for Elite Development and Reserve Team squads.
Omar Elabdellaoui has joined Feyenoord on a season-long loan.
The Norwegian Under-21 international penned a new two-year contract with City recently and now he will look to gain valuable first-team experience in Holland.
Elabdellaoui follows in the footsteps of team-mate John Guidetti, who recommended his former Academy colleague to the Dutch side.
