It's official... the players have returned to training at the City Football Academy.

Although the football hadn't stopped for everyone over the summer (some were on international duty up until this past weekend), those who enjoyed a break in the off-season are now in Manchester and are raring to go again.

Sporting their new training kit for 2015/16, our City stars began their preparations for the upcoming campaign at the training ground and as always, Club photographer Sharon Latham was on hand to snap it.

Here are the best of the shots from today's session...
