Richards continues to appear likely to leave Manchester City at the end of the season to gain more playing time, reports the Daily Mail.

Pablo Zabaleta has held down the full-back position over Richards. Though City have offered the England international a contract, Richards is hesitant to agree with Liverpool, West Ham, and Newcastle all interested in his services.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Richards looks destined to leave Manchester City this summer after telling the team he wouldn't sign a new contract, reports the Daily Mail.

City offered Richards a new five-year contract, but the defender has told the organization that he is not willing to agree. He hasn't held down a regular starting position in the side, which could be causing some of his frustration. His current contract expires at the end of next season, which could force Manchester City to see him this summer.

Richards (hamstring) is in the starting XI for Wednesday's FA Cup match against Blackburn.

Richards hasn't featured in a Premier League match since November 10, although he finally seems over the hamstring injury that cost him most of December. Despite his fit status, his fantasy value remains quite limited.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Richards will likely be out for a month due to the hamstring injury he suffered last Tuesday against Bayern Munich, The Guardian reports.

Pablo Zabaleta suffered a hamstring injury himself Tuesday, which means City are now down their top two full-backs. Richards will likely be able to return sometime in January, with Zabaleta's timetable unknown immediately.

Richards was taken off of Tuesday's Champions League match after just 16 minutes due to a hamstring injury, the Daily Mail reports.

Richards got a rare start for City on Tuesday and was surely frustrated about suffering the injury so quickly into the match. His availability for Saturday's Premier League match against Arsenal is in doubt, although it's tough to say he would have started even if fully fit.

Richards (hamstring) is still not fit enough to play, prompting him to miss Saturday's match against Stoke, the Manchester Evening News reports.

Richards could have seen plenty of time on the pitch if he were fit, given the numerous injuries that City have encountered to their back four. Unfortunately, Richards will remain on the sidelines for another week.

Richards (hamstring) is close to returning to training, as he targets Friday to get back on the pitch with teammates, ESPN FC reports.

Richards has battled a number of different injuries over the past calendar year and has yet to be fit enough to play for City this season. If he's able to train Friday, it gives him a small chance at playing Saturday against Hull City, although it's likely the team gives him more training before throwing him into a game. That next opportunity would come September 14 against Stoke City.

City are decimated with injuries in their back four, with Vincent Kompany (groin) and Matija Nastasic (ankle) still out as well.
