​Koeman visits injured Everton defender Coleman in Ireland

Everton boss Ronald Koeman and Toffees skipper Phil Jagielka travelled to Ireland on Tuesday to meet injured Seamus Coleman, who is recovering from a double leg break, reports Sky Sports.

The 28-year-old defender was injured in March when representing Ireland in their World Cup Qualifier against Wales in Dublin.

Koeman tweeted a photograph of their meeting with the message: "Today we visit Seamus Coleman and his family. Looking strong and positive".

Neil Taylor was shown a red card for his tackle on Coleman, and the Aston Villa defender has since contacted Coleman to send good wishes and express his sympathy.
