Man City hit by Isaksson injury

Isaksson may miss Sweden's Euro 2008 qualifier with Denmark
Manchester City are set to bring in another keeper after discovering that first-choice Andreas Isaksson is likely to miss the first month of the season.

The Swede has a hairline fracture of a thumb and, with Joe Hart, 20, also injured, it leaves inexperienced Kasper Schmeichel, 20, in the frame.

City boss Sven-Goran Eriksson told the club website: "Joe should be back training on Tuesday or Wednesday.

"It is more or less a must that we must bring in another keeper."

The former England manager added: "It is not the best way to start the Premier League, starting with two very young goalkeepers."

Isaksson, who missed Saturday's friendly with Valencia because of the injury, may also be sidelined for Sweden's Euro 2008 qualifier with Denmark on 8 September.

Meanwhile, Hearts revealed last week that they were interested in Schmeichel, who was on loan at Falkirk last season.
