Everton midfielder Gbamin targets season comeback

Everton midfielder Jean-Philippe Gbamin aims to see action before the end of the season.

The Ivory Coast international played just 135 minutes of football for his new club after joining from Mainz in the summer before picking up a serious thigh injury ahead of a trip to face Aston Villa in August.

Gbamin told evertonfc.com: "It is great to be back at Finch Farm with my teammates. I have my feeling back that I can get playing again.

"Training has been good. I worked a lot with Adam (Newall) in the past week, with social distancing in place.

"We worked outside and did some ball work which was great for me to do after the lockdown. I am doing all the things the other players are doing with the ball and I hope to be able to join in full sessions with them soon, depending on what we are told is safe to do.

"I am training with a view to playing this season if the Premier League returns. I feel good, fully recovered and I am ready.

"We are taking it slowly because it was a big injury. It was not easy but I think if the games start to be played in the Premier League then I think I can play."
