Everton boss Roberto Martinez is waiting on Aiden McGeady regaining his full fitness after spending two months languishing on the sidelines following a disagreement with former club Spartak Moscow.
And speaking to the Liverpool Echo, Martinez was full of praise for his January signing.
He said: "He has been putting in extra work, working really hard. It's about him setting certain levels to make sure he's fully fit soon.
"I think when he is he'll take us to a different level in terms of our forward play.
"With Aiden we had to start from scratch in terms of building up the fitness levels that he needed and we can already see he's a phenomenal player.
"He has great technical ability and it's important to get him feeling sharp so he can show that.
"He's settled in really well and over the next few weeks I think we'll see him ready to really help our season."
