New Everton No2 Graeme Jones is impressed by Seamus Coleman.

New Everton No2 Graeme Jones is impressed by Seamus Coleman.

Right-back Coleman managed 45 minutes of last Wednesday's 4-1 win over Accrington Stanley despite only returning to pre-season training two days earlier.

“His movement is a bit of a lesson for all strikers because he loves to penetrate in behind the defence,” Jones told evertonfc.com.

“Darron Gibson gets two seconds on the ball and Seamus is the first to move. So for a boy whose only had two training sessions in five weeks it’s refreshing and really good to see.

“We’re excited to work with him. He’s a naturally fit boy or he wouldn’t have had 45 minutes, so it bodes really well."
