The Bolton Wanderers midfielder has retired from the game after he suffered a cardiac arrest last March.
Bolton boss Owen Coyle says it wouldn't surprise him to see the midfielder back on a football pitch reasonably soon.
Bolton Wanderers footballer Fabrice Muamba has been discharged from hospital, almost a month after suffering a cardiac arrest during a game.
Bolton Wanderers midfielder Fabrice Muamba has retired from football, according to The Sun.
Muamba suffered a cardiac arrest during a FA Cup match against Tottenham Hotspur last March - his heart stopped for 78 minutes.
A source told the newspaper: "Fabrice is devastated as you can imagine".
The Guardian's chief football writer Daniel Taylor has tweeted:
Bolton midfielder Fabrice Muamba has revealed he took part in an impromptu game of football while on holiday in May, two months after collapsing during an FA Cup tie against Tottenham with a cardiac arrest.
Muamba told CNN:
"I was on holiday and I was staying in a hotel and there were quite a few footballers in the hotel as well. The staff of the hotel usually play against the visitor so I was by the pool and I heard they were playing football," he said.
"Then I went across and saw other footballers playing and I told my friends and Shauna - I told her 'I am sorry but I am going to play football'. She goes 'are you sure?' and I say 'yes' and I just went in there."
Fabrice Muamba, whose heart stopped for 78 minutes after he collapsed during a live televised match, will receive an Honorary Doctorate later today.
Muamba, 24, will be honoured by the University of Bolton at its degree congregation ceremony for students, their friends and families to celebrate graduation day.

Police were called just before 1pm today to Queen Street in the Farnworth area of Bolton after receiving a call from the ambulance service.
Officers attended and found a woman dead at the scene.

Fabrice Muamba's young son cried out "daddy is frozen" as he saw him collapse on TV during a football match as he suffered cardiac arrest.
The Bolton Wanderers midfielder's fiancee, Shauna Magunda, told The Sun about the moment she and three-year-old Joshua saw the Premier League star collapse.
She said: "Joshua seemed to think his dad was playing. The reaction of the fans and other players told me something was seriously wrong. People were crying and chanting Fabrice's name.
"Then my phone started ringing. Fabrice's agent got through to me and confirmed my worst fear - his heart had stopped beating."

I would like to extend my sympathies to this young boy's family and friends at what is clearly a very difficult and emotional time for everyone.
