Yak has been sidelined with an Achilles problem since November last year in a season which proved to be an injury nightmare for the beaten FA Cup finalists.
Now he is putting in the hard yards at Everton's Finch Farm training ground, and feels he will be ready for the new Premier League campaign in August.
"I feel good . I'm back in training," Yakubu said on the club's website.
" I've started running, started kicking the ball and hopefully I'll be back for the beginning of the season."
