Funes-Mori itching to make Everton first-team return

Everton defender Ramiro Funes-Mori can't wait for his return to the first-team.

The Argentine has been playing for the club's Under 23 side after making his comeback from a knee injury that was sustained in March last year.

And the 27-year-old insists he's now ready to play for Sam Allardyce's side.

"I've been training good these past weeks," he told Everton's club website.

"Even though I wasn't playing for the first team, I've been playing for the Under-23s to get the rhythm, get the tempo. I'm 100 percent fit to play and I'm ready for Saturday."
