The Nigerian is starring on-loan with Anderlecht this season.
Meanwhile, Phil Jagielka and Morgan Schneiderlin will be back for Sunday's game against Southampton - but manager David Unsworth says the trip to St Mary's will probably come too soon for youngster Mason Holgate.
Unsworth told evertontv: “Phil, Mason and Morgan have all trained the last couple of days. For Mason, it's probably a little too early for him, but Morgan and Phil should be fine.
“We'll have one more training session and see how they come through that but hopefully all will be okay.
"Otherwise, everybody came through Thursday's game [against Atalanta] unscathed and the players that didn't get changed were all rested and will come back into the reckoning."
