Man City's Joe Hart is finally back in the game - although fans aren't sure he's there to stay

Updated: 

Joe Hart is back in the game after returning to the first team as Manchester City take on Steaua Bucharest in the second leg of their Champions League play-off.

The England goalkeeper was recalled by Pep Guardiola after being left on to warm the bench for the first three games of the season - and has been given the honour of captain.

The 29-year-old's appearance isn't likely to squash speculation over his future at the club, who are supposedly poised to complete the signing of Claudio Bravo from Barcelona.

Hart has been linked with a move away from City since losing his place to Willy Caballero, and many fans believe this match will mark his last with the club.

Midfielder Yaya Toure also made his first appearance of the season against Steaua after being overlooked completely for the first three games.
