​Andre Gomes returns to Everton action

Everton star Andre Gomes is back in first team action.

The Portuguese central midfielder suffered a serious ankle injury earlier this season.

But he is back from the ankle dislocation he suffered in November to play 60 minutes in a behind closed doors friendly.

The club tweeted about Gomes coming through the friendly at USM Finch Farm without any problems.

And the club's medical staff believes the 26-year-old is on the verge of being available for the first team in competitive games.

He will continue to train, but it may be a couple of weeks before Carlo Ancelotti integrates him into the team.
