Athens - Manchester City midfielder Bruno Zuculini's loan spell to AEK Athens has been cut short by injury, the Greek Super League team said on Monday.

The 22-year-old Argentine fractured his left foot in training on Monday and AEK doctors said Zuculini must undergo surgery and will then need at least two months recuperation.

AEK said they had informed City of the injury and that the English Premier League side wants to bring Zuculini back to England for his treatment.

Zuculini, who only joined AEK at the start of February on a six-month loan, played two matches for the club, who sit second behind Olympiakos in their domestic league.

Zuculini, an Argentina under-20 international, joined City from Racing Club in 2014 but has made only one appearance for the Citizens, in the Community Shield last season.

He has spent the rest of his time in Manchester being loaned out, joining Valencia, Cordoba and Middlesbrough before AEK.
