Oviedo, Kone on way back for Everton - Martinez

Bryan Oviedo and Arouna Kone are edging closer to an Everton return.

The Liverpool Echo says they have stepped up their rehabilitation from injury by training with the first team.

Manager Roberto Martinez has used the international break to edge the long-term absentees nearer a return to action.

"It has been great for Bryan Oviedo and Arouna Kone to play a big part in the first-team sessions this week," said Martinez.

"They have given us some really good signs. Every time they train, they look a little bit closer to full fitness.

"It will be fantastic to get Bryan and Arouna fully fit with the first-team group real soon."
